SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A veto by Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether clearing the way for a $25 million city office building downtown will stand.

The City Council recently voted to pull funding for the 79,000-square-foot, three-story structure. Huether vetoed the move, saying the project is needed.

The council on Tuesday night failed to override the veto.

An activist is trying to gather enough petition signatures to allow the public to vote on the project. Bruce Danielson needs to collect about 5,700 valid signatures to force a special election.
