SD Supreme Court: Buffalo Chip Can't Be A City

Nov 12, 2020

Buffalo Chip cannot be incorporated as a municipality.

That's the decision of the South Dakota Supreme Court made public on Thursday, Nov. 12.

The Buffalo Chip campground is a popular attraction for bikers during the Sturgis Rally. It applied for incorporation in February 2015, and Meade County voters approved the plan.

Lawsuits ensued, in part to answer the question if "or" means "and" under certain circumstances.
