Listen to the Dakota Town Hall podcast talk with Travis Lasseter who is running for Rapid City County Commissioner.
The county commission just completed the 2040 comprehensive plan. Have you had the opportunity to review the plan and is there anything in the plan that you would like to talk about?
The Commission has asked that departments limit their 2021 budgets to the 2020 level, do you think that is an obtainable goal for the county to not increase the budget?
What services do we need to look at for possible reduction of the county budget or to keep the total budget as low as possible?
One of the issues facing the county commission is vacation rental property. How do you propose the balance between property rights of the proposed rental property and that of their neighbors?
Would you support implementing the wheel tax to make the county eligible for the additional funding from the state or would you support keeping Pennington County as it is regarding this tax?
Mental Health and Addiction issues are affecting every part of the state. Do you think the county is properly addressing these issues and if not what would you suggest for a change?
Do you think the county is doing enough related to the current COVID-19 situation?
What do you bring to the commission as far as experience and special skills to make things better?
