SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The mayor of Sioux Falls says it’s hard to find something negative to say about South Dakota’s largest city, though his challenger disagrees.

Mayor Mike Huether in his annual “state of the city” address said Sioux Falls has a robust city budget and a strong economy with plenty of jobs.

He said the city is living within its means and has been able to put more money into savings. He said the city put $600,000 into reserves last year despite an April ice storm that cost $1 million to clean up, boosting the reserve fund to nearly $46 million.

City Councilman Greg Jamison is running against Huether in next month’s election. He says Sioux Falls has problems that need to be addressed, including a growing crime rate.
