SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A Sioux Falls activist is trying to gather enough petition signatures to allow the public to vote on a proposed $25 million city office building downtown.

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

Activist Bruce Danielson filed the necessary paperwork to begin collecting signatures. He needs to gather about 5,700 valid signatures in three weeks to force a special election.
