Pennington County made the decision last Tuesday to make Monday a planned soft-opening for some of their government buildings in the form of appointments-only and the decision to accept appointments was up to the department head. These buildings have kept their doors closed due to Covid-19 since March 20th.
As of Monday afternoon, Social Services and the County Engineers office is staying with a “doors closed” policy. Department of motor vehicle and the auditor’s office are open by appointment. The Department of Motor Vehicle phone number is 683-7020 and the Auditor’s Office at 683-7000. The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office will once again roll fingerprints on an appointment-only basis at 218-416-7097.
