Welcome to the City of Gettysburg,

South Dakota!

Resolution No. 2020-5-4


Resolution Promoting Health and Safety


Whereas the City of Gettysburg continues to be concerned about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; and,


Whereas, the City of Gettysburg had previously adopted Resolution No. 2020-3-25 as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is now due to be re-evaluated; and,


Whereas, social distancing is meant to slow the spread of disease so that the area health care system is not overwhelmed; and,


Whereas, based on the number of positive cases and active cases in Potter County, and our region of the State, generally, and the current rate of hospitalization across the State, the Mayor and City Council believe the restrictions and closures of businesses enacted in Resolution No. 2020-3-25 may be allowed to expire in place of new guidelines:


Therefore, be it resolved by the City Council of the City of Gettysburg that every resident of and visitor to Gettysburg should:

 Follow CDC guidelines regarding hygiene and prevention of spread and continue to limit travel and trips outside the home to only work and essential tasks; and

  1. Continue to practice social distancing; and


Further, that every business, organization, government entity, or any other association of people that may have reason to gather people together in places available to the public, should 

  1. Limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer in any area; and

  2. If limiting gatherings to 10 people or fewer is not possible, to ensure all people at the gathering maintain a minimum physical distance of 6 feet at all time; and


Further, that this Resolution shall stay in effect until June 9th, 2020, at which time it will automatically expire, unless amended or rescinded by action of the City Council of the City of Gettysburg at an earlier date.


Dated this 4th day of May, 2020.

Welcome to the City of Gettysburg! The city known as "Where the Battle Wasn't," Gettysburg, S.D. is the sister city to Gettysburg, P.A. 


A town of about 1152 people, Gettysburg is the epitome of small town living.  Situated in the middle of the Prairie, Gettysburg is perfect for hunters and fishermen alike.


Gettysburg is the County Seat, so we have a top-of-the-line courthouse that houses both court processions and information about the City of Gettysburg. 


Included is an events calendar that outlines all the events for the month.


We have a Potter County newspaper that comes out on every Wednesday, that can be found here:

Toilets are not Trashcans Campaign!

Products such as wipes, paper towels and feminine hygiene products should not be flushed, but often are, causing problems for utilities that amount to billions of dollars in maintenance and repair costs—costs which ultimately pass on to the consumer.  Other consumer products contain ingredients, such as plastic microbeads and triclosan, which may harm water quality and the environment.  Fats, oils and greases (FOG) and unused pharmaceuticals should also be kept out of the sewer system.

NOTICE:  Although the Fire Hydrants are owned by the City of Gettysburg it is however the property owners responsibility to make sure that it is cleared of snow.  Fire Hydrants must be accessible at all times with a 3 foot radius & a clear path to the street. Please direct any questions or concerns on this issue to City Hall.
