Penn County Commission begins budget work

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Pennington County Board of Commissioners begins budget hearings with a current $6 million budget deficit.

On Monday, the board began their 2025 budget process by hearing from county department heads on their needs for the next fiscal year.

District 3 Commissioner Deb Hadcock believes the number of full-time equivalent employees in some areas should be reduced.

She added it’s not ideal if the county is increasing the budget every year which could mean more problems for property owners.

The Pennington County Board of Commissioners will hold a preliminary budget hearing at the end of this month and will finalize the budget in a September hearing.
