Deadwood Budget Increases by Over $500K in 2018

The City of Deadwood’s operating budget increased to $16,921,526 with the approval of $569,100 in supplemental funding items, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. An additional $465,000 was allocated to the public buildings fund to assist with the demolition of the Deadwood Pavilion; $54,000 went to the streets department for knuckle truck and barrier handle; and $5,600 went to a building inspector for plan review fees.

Per recommendations from the BID 7 board, $35,000 was allocated for 2018 marketing efforts. For the bed and booze fund, $5,000 went to crowd control barriers and $10,000 assisted a partnership with Black Hills Vacations for a ticketing system and event center. All aforementioned supplemental funds were sourced from unexpended cash.
