BREAKING: Rapid City Council votes to approve alternative resolution

UPDATE: (10:51 P.M.) – Business owners will be allowed to run at full capacity if they so choose.

“I think we’ve accomplished our major goals and I think its time to just go ahead and let business owners decide how they’d like to run their businesses,” said Darla Drew of Ward 5.

The council also approved new vehicles for the police department. The council also approved for the Fire Department to apply for grants to hire six new firefighters.

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City Council voted to pass the alternative resolution giving businesses the authority to manage their own business.

By a vote of 7-2, the council decided that businesses can run at full capacity if they feel it is appropriate. The restrictions now become recommendations for businesses who are trying to ensure the safety of the staff and customers.

The resolution puts aside the modified rules and regulations that were put in place in late April.

The resolution is in effect until July 31, unless the council repeals, modifies or extends the resolution.
