Initiative Petition Validated and Filed with Sioux Falls City Clerk
A Municipal Initiative Petition was received by the Sioux Falls City Clerk’s Office proposing an ordinance to prohibit the construction or permitting of any new slaughterhouse within city limits. On July 11, the petition was validated as it contains the required number of signatures and is considered filed. Challenges to filed petitions may be made at the City Clerk’s Office, 235 West Tenth Street, within five business days of filing and in accordance with state law.
The City Clerk plans to present the petition to the City Council at its meeting on Tuesday, July 19, where the Council may also be presented with an ordinance to certify language to the Lincoln and Minnehaha County Auditors for placement of the question on the November General Election ballot.
