PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Residents of Pierre are being allowed to build their garages a little higher, to accommodate their campers and boats.

The City Commission on Tuesday increased the maximum allowable height for accessory buildings from 15 feet to 16 feet.

City Engineer John Childs says Pierre is a river community, being located on the Missouri River. He says many residents have boats and campers, and the large recreational vehicles often don’t fit in buildings with 15-foot-high ceilings.

The ordinance change will apply to new building permits.
