A contractor who leveled a historic building in Deadwood has been cited for not having a city permit.
First Gold Hotel hired Gardner Construction of Lead to raze the building Thursday, after a Wednesday vote by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission to allow the removal of the building to make way for more casino parking. The controversial decision ended a dispute that lingered for years and ended up as far as the state Supreme Court.
The contractor was issued a citation that carries a maximum punishment of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine because First Gold Hotel didn't secure a demolition permit.
The contractor called the issue "political." City Historic Preservation Officer Kevin Kuchenbecker says city attorneys are reviewing what to do.
