Biannual forum held by Ward 5 representatives

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Keeping up with campaign promises, Ward 5 councilwomen Darla Drew and Laura Armstrong held their biannual public forum.

The focus of the forum is on the Lime Creek project, the floodplain, and how it affects how something, such as the Lime Creek project, is handled.

Forums like this give the public a more casual and comfortable setting to ask questions to council members.

"When you are looking at someone eye to eye you make deeper connections and you can kind of get through any misunderstandings or anything that can be misconstrued," says Laura Armstrong.

Armstrong added that the forums are open to everyone in Rapid City.
