City Council Turns Down Sign Agreement

City Council Turns Down Sign Agreement

The Rapid City Council has voted to deny the settlement agreement that would have allowed Epic Outdoor Advertising to drop two pending lawsuits against the city in return for a sign ordinance change. According to the Rapid City Journal, after hearing from City Attorney Joel Landeen on how the agreement could open up the city to further litigation on its billboard ordnances as well as listening to several residents, the Council voted 8-1 in favor of rejecting the settlement. Questions on the next step will now rise as the city waits to hear back from Epic. Read the council meeting agenda at this link.
