South Dakota Basic Code

The South Dakota Basic Code is a complete model code of ordinances designed specifically for smaller cities and towns in South Dakota. By utilizing the concept of shared cost to provide an economic alternative for codification, it allows smaller municipalities in South Dakota to enjoy the benefits of codification without the substantial expense of a customized code.

Sample Provisions

The South Dakota Basic Code contains provisions on subjects typically encountered by smaller cities and towns and may include:

  • Administration
  • Animal Regulations
  • Business Regulations
  • Fire Prevention
  • General Offenses
  • Nuisances
  • Peddler and Solicitor Regulations
  • Streets and sidewalks
  • Taxation
  • Traffic regulations
  • And much more

Based on State Law

Most sections are based directly on South Dakota law or on model ordinances drafted by American Legal Publishing and reviewed by the South Dakota Municipal League. In addition, the South Dakota Basic Code is updated annually to incorporate state law enactments, deletions, and amendments, keeping your municipality current with changes in state law.
