Sturgis Council passes final reading of 2024 Budget

Sturgis passes final reading of 2024 Budget.

STURGIS, S.D. – The Sturgis City Council passed second and final reading of their 2024 budget last night.

The city needed to make cuts to the balance its 2024 budget. Those cuts had been the topic of discussion at both first and second reading.

One of the initial cuts garnered a lot of discussion. That was a proposed $150,000 cut for equipment replacement.

Council members at first reading expressed concern that was too large of an amount to be cutting from the fund and the council worked on additional cuts totaling $100,000 that would be taken out of other departments.

Councilor Aaron Jordan says despite the cuts, they had good discussion on what needed to be done.


Jordan says this was a good experience for the council without having a city manager in office.

The council met in special session last night to pass the $31.8 million dollar budget because it needed to be passed by October 1st.
