Sioux Falls says park's safety reviews are oral, not written


The Associated Press - April 13, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Sioux Falls doesn't have any written reports of safety reviews conducted over the last decade for a park where several people have drowned, most recently last month.

The Argus Leader reports that City Hall issued a news release Thursday saying Falls Park safety reviews are conducted orally and that no written reports were prepared for the city. The announcement follows the newspaper's request for a 2016 safety audit cited after 5-year-old Maggie Zaiger drowned at the park on March 19.

The newspaper also requested documents two weeks ago from safety protocol reviews conducted after two people drowned at the park in 2013.

The release says the city reviews park safety annually using a loss control consultant hired by the city's insurance company.
