Mayor Mike Huether will visit Potsdam, Germany, next week to represent Sioux Falls and speak at a christening service for a street car to be named "Sioux Falls."

Sioux Falls and Potsdam, Germany, have been sister cities since 1990.  On June 12, a street car in Potsdam will be christened and officially named "Sioux Falls," and Mayor Huether will provide a speech spoken in Germany during the ceremony.

The first official sister cities agreement between Potsdam and Sioux Falls was signed by Sioux Falls Mayor Jack White two weeks before German reunification on October 3, 1990.

The trip is being paid for privately by Mayor Huether.
