Disputes between contractors and homeowners or property owners could be settled through a civil suit, but not through an appeal to the Building Board of Appeals, if this ordinance passes.

Possible Changes To Appeals Process For Rapid City Contractor Issues

A proposed city ordinance would prevent Rapid City residents from appealing decisions of the city building official to the Building Board of Appeals, reports the Rapid City Journal.

The ordinance, which was heard before the Legal and Finance Committee on Wednesday, is designed to prevent homeowner/contractor disputes from taking this route.  Instead, disputes would be taken up with the building official himself, the community planning department, or a civil suit.  License holders, applicants for licenses and others performing work would still be allowed to appeal to the Building Board of Appeals.  The Legal and Finance Committee voted unanimously to recommend the ordinance.
