At its meeting last week, the Rapid City Council approved second reading of an ordinance revising the annual renewal date for City sewer, water and trenching licenses.

The State Plumbing Commission recently updated the renewal date of  state Sewer Water licenses, changing the dates required for annual license renewals from December 31 to June 30.  The City’s Trenching Board recommended an ordinance change, adjusting the renewal date for City Sewer Water and Trenching licenses from February 28 to August 31.

“By adjusting our current renewal date to August 31, we better align with the state’s licensing,” said Interim Assistant Public Works Director Shannon Truax.  “Any sewer-water or trenching license that was scheduled to expire on February 28 will automatically be extended to August 31.”

License holders were notified by email of the change and will be sent a reminder email in July.

“We encourage anyone who has a license to keep their email updated with us so that they don’t miss any important notices about licensing,” Truax said.

Contractors doing sewer/water installation work in Rapid City are required to be licensed through both the state and city.

City Public Works officials say the change of the local licensure renewal to August 31 ensures the state license is renewed for the year, prior to the renewal deadline for local licensure.
