 SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - This is the last day the “Save Our Neighborhood” group in Sioux Falls is collecting signatures to refer the city council’s approval of a Walmart at 85th and Minnesota to a vote.

     Spokesman Jeff Gould says the signature count stands at 5,700 signatures but the group would like to collect 500 more today before 3:30.

     Gould says the city requires 51-hundred signatures to refer the council decision to a vote.  Gould say petitions are being circulated at the Minehaha County Administration Building, the downtown library and the Caille Library..             

     Gould says the signatures will be taken to city hall this afternoon.

     If enough signatures are ruled valid by the city, the issue would go to a vote in April.
