Years Old Property Deals Could Hit Back at Council, Taxpayers

A ten-year old agreement made between a developer and the Rapid City Council in 2005 could be coming back to haunt the current council. According to the Rapid City Journal article, the agreement included a Waiver of the Right to Protest, or WORP, where the developers were not forced to make new roads at developing properties initially. The City Council is now dealing with the fall-out as the city has grown and has to decide how to pay for the road construction. Although a decision was not made, the council did agree that current home owners would not be charged and the city would not use tax increment financing.
