Spearfish Annexes 660 Acres Despite Opposition



Bookmark and Share

Spearfish is 660 acres bigger, but many of its new residents don't like it.
    
The City Council listened to emotional pleas from people during a two-hour hearing then voted 5-1 Monday night to annex the land.
   
Many of the 1,635 residents who will be affected plan to push for a public vote in hopes of overturning the annexation.
    
City officials argued that residents in city limits pay to provide police, fire and ambulance services in the area when Lawrence County officials can't respond. But the message of the Spearfish Valley residents is they didn't ask for city services, don't need city services and just want to be left alone.
    
The city also approved the use of mountain bikes on Lookout Mountain.
