Deadwood Rejects Mandatory Business Lock Boxes

April 18, 2014, 11:17 AM

Deadwood Rejects Mandatory Business Lock Boxes
DEADWOOD, SD -

Deadwood's City Commission has rejected a proposed ordinance that would have required lock boxes on businesses to give emergency officials access at all hours.

Supporters said the lock boxes would benefit firefighters and police officers in emergencies, and guard against damage from forced entries.

Opponents of the move said it would be an intrusion on their rights and an unnecessary expense. A lock box costs about $300.

Some buildings in Deadwood have installed the lock boxes voluntarily through a Fire Department system. The proposed ordinance making them mandatory would have carried a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for noncompliance.
