Video: Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
STURGIS, Miss. (WCBI)-Sturgis officials are ready to talk about getting the popular motorcycle rally back. Mayor Walter Turner says the rally will be back on the table early this 2013. Turner says the board of alderman has received a proposal from the Sturgis South Bike Rally Board to host another rally this year. The event was canceled in 2011 and 2012 in a dispute over funds for city services including security, sanitation, and trash collection. Organizers say the rally, once an Oktibbeha County staple for 14 straight years, has been a dependable source of revenue for local hotels and restaurants. No official date has been set for the meeting between the organization and the board of alderman.
