New Rapid City Billboard Restrictions Are Dead

RAPID CITY, SD -
A Rapid City committee has killed a proposed ordinance that would have increased restrictions on sign companies who put up digital billboards.
The Legal and Finance Committee voted 3-2 to table the revised billboard rules, which a citizen task force recommended. There was no discussion or public comment prior to the vote.
Mayor Alan Hanks says he's disappointed. He says the issue is dead unless a majority of the council votes to force the committee to deliver the ordinance to the full council for consideration.
