Rapid City Budget Meetings Begin

The Rapid City Council opened its first 2018 Budget meeting on August 15, at 5:30 at the City/School Administration Building. Additional meetings are set for Thursday, August 17, and for August 21 and 24 on an as needed basis. The Rapid City Journal provided some additional information from the mayor on how the budget was created. Under priority-based budgeting, city programs received a point score based on if the program was mandated by law, if other organizations provide a similar service, and how the program fits with the city's comprehensive plan, among other criteria. It was due to the low scores that the Retired Senior Volunteer Service, Allied Arts Fund, the Journey Museum, and other programs were marked for cuts.

More stories on the budget are linked in the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
