The Rapid City Council held the second reading of the FY 2017 Budget on September 6. The Rapid City Journal reports that there were over two hours of debate on it, some of it following from the first reading. Proposals to cut department funding by 6% and 3% to keep from spending undesignated cash were both defeated. Also voted down was an amendment to increase funding for the Humane Society.
