Rapid City Common Council highlights successes at informal meeting

RAPID CITY S.D. – Once a year, the Rapid City Common Council meets over a cup of coffee, and informally pitches ideas for the community.

They held their meeting on Saturday at the Outdoor Campus West. 2018 was a big year for the council. They highlighted their successes from approving police body cams to paving the way for a new flight at Rapid City Regional Airport to Newark, New Jersey.

When Council Members see each other, it’s normally at City Hall when they only talk about items on the agenda. This meeting gives council members the chance to pitch ideas for the upcoming year.

“It’s easier when you’re sitting down over a cup of coffee and you’re having a little snack to be able to communicate with each other and understand where your fellow council mates are coming from,” said Ward 1 Alderwoman Becky Drury.

It’s currently unclear what specific items the council members discussed for the upcoming year. No official action was taken on any policy.
