Buffalo Chip To Become A New South Dakota Municipality On May 7, 2015?

TownThe Buffalo Chip is one step closer to becoming the newest municipality in South Dakota. The Meade County Commission today accepted the petition presented by registered voters for incorporation. The registered voters and founding members of Buffalo Chip, SD will vote in an election to make the incorporation official on May 7, 2015. Buffalo Chip, SD may well be operating as a municipality before the 75th Anniversary of the rally this August.

The new municipality aims to provide investors a heightened level of stability and help bolster future area growth.

“We are all excited about the opportunity to become the town of Buffalo Chip, SD,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “We are reaching out to strengthen our relationship with our neighbor, the city of Sturgis, and other nearby governmental entities, so that we can work together on a plan that will benefit everyone. Our goal is to promote economic growth in this whole region, not just within Buffalo Chip.”

Future Town of Buffalo Chip residents were excited to hear about today’s events. Most had been working to promote incorporation for many months.

“This is great news!” said Buffalo Chip resident, Greg Smith. “I’m very proud to be one of the first residents of Buffalo Chip, SD. This is a beautiful area and I’ve been calling it home for years now. I can’t wait to use Buffalo Chip, SD in my address.

    Buffalo Chip SD – Maybe a Town where a responsible Adult can walk down the Sidewalk while drinking a Cold Beer. Just Imagine. Go Woody.

    Good for them. The fools running the city of Sturgis have made it impossible to do business
    there. Why do you think vendors have gone to Rapid City and other areas for the rallying?

    Thank You Honeypucker & Voice of reason
    Either this is going to be the greatest boon to Bikers
    (which some say it already is) or it can be it’s greatest bane,,,
    To paraphrase Stan Lee/Peter Parker
    “With ANY kind of power comes great responsibility”!
    C’mon a whole town with the headaches of infrastructure, Security/Police
    Etc, etc, etc, not to mention, TAXES to keep everything running ????
    Granted Woody does a hell of a job keeping it running with all of that & more during the rally
    But 360 days a year? Don’t know if i would want that kind of headache???
