As he sees it, Mayor Huether looks at the current path of this municipal service and is concerned that too much money is being spent without getting a decent return. Eventually reality will catch up to the Sioux Falls mass transit system and Huether believes costs must be curtailed now before more drastic changes are needed in the future.

At the moment, the Sioux Falls City Council is poring over the latest budget proposal that must be approved by the end of the month. The Council and the Executive Branch of city government will have to come to terms on the future of a viable mass transit system in Sioux Falls.
