Last night after Sioux Falls City Council voted to hear more about how public input is, well…important to the public, a proposal was made up to let citizens battle it out before gaining the privilege to perform in front of them.

“I think it’s a great way to weed out some of the less important citizens. It’s technically on television, so we believe it’s great for transparency AND television ratings!” said one councilor.

Citizens will try-out for the public input sessions on Monday and the public will have all day Tuesday to choose who is good enough to perform before the council on Tuesday night.

“I think I’m going to try juggling in front of them. Maybe put on a red nose or blow fire. Anything to get me in front of that council to make my voice heard!” said one public inputter.

We reached out to Sioux Falls City Councilors about if they’ll have any type of red buttons or automatic disqualifications in their hands and have not received any word back.

“It’s clear they’re trying something new with the new Mayor in office. We’ll see if it works for them or if we will have to try other means of getting in front of them,” said another concerned public inputter.

Sioux Falls City Council was berated on Tuesday night by over 35+ public inputters, all of which had talents in their back pockets just in case.
