SIOUX FALLS - City officials in Sioux Falls are debating what to do with an estimated $1.7 million surplus in the city's capital budget.

Finance Director Tracy Turbak says the surplus is partly the result of unanticipated revenue from a city sales tax.

The Argus Leader reports that the City Council will hear recommendations from department heads in coming weeks about how - or whether - the money should be spent. One option is to roll the surplus into the 2014 capital budget.
