Rapid City Council Decides To Revise Vacant House Ordinance

On Monday, June 6, the Rapid City Council discussed a proposed vacant house ordinance, eventually sending it back to staff to be revised, Rapid City Journal reports. Currently, the ordinance would force Rapid City residents who are on vacation for more than three months at a time to register with city and pay a $50 fee. 

Some city council members stated that the goal of the ordinance was to fix problems that some vacant homes were causing, but they don't think the ordinance as it currently is will be a suitable solution.
