STURGIS, S.D. (KOTA TV) – The Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club and the City of Sturgis are at odds over a proposed annexation
For more than five years, Sturgis has been looking to annex properties that are immediately adjacent to the city and get city services, but are not within city limits.
“The Jackpine Gypsies use city roadways to access their property, the emergency services, and even city utilities,” says Sturgis City Manager, Daniel Ainslie. “And so it becomes natural to make sure that area is also within the city limits.”
The city has been in negotiations with the club for almost half a year to discuss the proposed annexation.
“We have tried a voluntary annexation,” says treasurer of Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club, Vicki Winsell. “It has not been in our best interest at all. But if we could come to an agreement that would benefit both parties it would be great. Because right now, we don’t feel there’s a representation for the gypsies.”
