Hello from the newest town in South Dakota… And likely the United States. Maybe even the entire world– Buffalo Chip, SD!

On Thursday, January 25, 2018, the South Dakota Supreme Court released a 16-page statement reversing a previous fourth circuit court decision ruling against the Meade County Board of Commissioners last year. The latest Supreme Court decision rules in favor of the Town of Buffalo Chip’s 2015 incorporation.

The Buffalo Chip municipality incorporation has faced opposition from the City of Sturgis and other groups.

Town Board President Daymon Woodruff said, “We are happy with the unanimous Supreme Court ruling. Now the Town of Buffalo Chip can move forward developing future economic relationships and making comprehensive municipal plans for growth on stable footing.”
