South Dakota looks to build $400K fence surrounding Governor's Mansion, citing security needs

PIERRE, S.D. ó Concerned for Republican Gov. Kristi Noem's safety, South Dakota may spend up to $400,000 to construct a fence around the Governor's Mansion, located in the capital city of Pierre.

According to state documents dated April 29, the state's Office of the State Engineer and the Bureau of Administration are accepting statements of interest from companies to construct a fence to border the mansion by Sept. 30, with the budget subject to change.

Noem spokesperson Kristin Wileman said Thursday, May 30, via email that the state has not yet made any bids and the departments are "reviewing the security needs for the governorís residence, but no final decisions have been made."

The move comes after a few recent security incidents at governor's residences throughout the country. In March, a man was charged for stealing property from vehicles parked on the Michigan governor's residence in Lansing, according to the Lansing State Journal. In 2018, two individuals were arrested for reportedly breaking into the residences of Wyoming and California's governors, according to the Casper Star Tribune and The Sacramento Bee.
