City Council revises ordnance on secondhand dealers, postpones vote on sports complex


To deter theft, the Rapid City Council revises a recent ordinance dealing with secondhand jewelry.

Tuesday night the council voted 8 to 2 to approve a revision to the Pawnbroker and Secondhand Dealer Licensing Ordinance, which made pawn shop owners take photographs of incoming jewelry.

The new revision now requires gem and precious metal dealers to do the same thing.

The council voted against an amendment that would make secondhand dealers take photos of all items bought.

Also scheduled at the city council meeting was a vote to fund the Rapid City Sports Complex.

The Public Works Department selected the lowest responsible bidder for the complex, which was Mainline Contracting Incorporated, in the amount of 1.7 million dollars.

The department requested to table the vote for two weeks to allow for additional easements that will need council approval.

The council will vote on the issue on the September 16th meeting.
