Civic Center Meeting Discusses Security and Renovations

Safety and renovations were major topics at the Tuesday meeting of Rapid City's Civic Center Board of Directors. The Rapid City Journal reported that the meeting started with a recommendation from the Department of Homeland Security to install metal detectors in the building. This was the first item out of a DHS report on how to have safer events. The board will apply for a grant that would reimburse the civic center for buying the metal detectors.

Also at the meeting, Mayor Steve Allender reported on the work of the Civic Center Resolution Task Force. The Rapid City Journal reported that much of the time was spent on the proposal for the Civic Center expansion and how such a proposal might be better presented if needed.

More stories on the Civic Center can be found in the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
