Pennington County Commissioner Faces Conduct Questioning

District 1 County Commissioner George Ferebee will face questions regarding his residency at tonight’s Pennington County Commission meeting, reports KOTA Territory News. Ferebee represents District 1 of Pennington County and was elected while a resident in Hill City.

South Dakota State law states that if a county commissioner moves from the district in which they were originally elected, their seat is to be declared vacant. In August, Ferebee signed voter registration documents that listed his address as Rapid City. He has since changed his registration back to Hill City, but Commission Chair Lloyd Lacroix would like to confirm whether or not the Commissioner plans to complete his term.

Ferebee has also been fully or partially absent to several recent commission meetings.
