SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether has laid out the most expensive five-year capital spending plan in city history.

Huether's plan for city projects scheduled between 2017 and 2021 totals $589.2 million. The capital program includes street and utility improvements, park upgrades and a new fire station.

Huether says the plan focuses "on the critical infrastructure that the public expects to be rock solid." Some City Council members have raised concerns about the price tag.

The mayor next month will give his 2017 budget address before the council begins budget hearings in August.
