SF City Council Considers Scalping Law



Bookmark and Share

The Sioux Falls City Council is considering a new ordinance that would prohibit ticket scalping for tickets being sold over face value.

At Tuesday’s meeting the council had its first reading of the new ordinance that city leaders say will protect consumers from getting ripped off. With the new facilities in Sioux Falls, like the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center or the Sanford Pentagon, some are worried when bigger names or events come to town, ticket scalping could become a problem. But some city council members say people should be able to scalp tickets if they want to.

They also say if people are willing to pay the prices, then that’s their choice.

 However, prohibiting scalping could potentially allow bigger tournaments, like the NCAA basketball tournament, to come to town.

If someone was caught scalping with this proposed law they could receive up to a $500 fine.

The city council will have a second reading and vote on the proposed ordinance next week.
