Pennington County Commission meeting June 20th – see mineral withdrawal resolution

June 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm

Pennington County Commission at their meeting on June 20th – UPDATE: We thought the county would  vote on a resolution to support the BHNF & BLM proposed  mineral withdrawal around Pactola Lake & the entire drainage. However at the meeting they have proposed both a neutral and opposition  resolution (opposing the  withdrawal). The motion to oppose cared 3 to 2. Hadcock, Drewes, & Lassiter voted in favor; Rosskenecht & LaCroix voted against the resolution (thus in favor of withdrawal).  Pennington County officially opposes the mineral withdrawal. Meeting began at 9 am MT
