City Commission To Discuss Lock Boxes

The Yankton City Commission will talk about expanding a city ordinance that could lead to more key lock boxes on apartments and businesses. Assistant Fire Chief Larry Nickles says having one key lock box on a building entrance could save a lot of time in a fire emergency…

The boxes, which contain keys to a building, can be opened only with special keys carried by fire department officers. Nickles says while the keys are mandated by the fire code, an ordinance would help them explain their use to building owners.…

Nickles says having master keys in the lock boxes saves time, and could save lives…

Nickles says the boxes cost about two hundred dollars, and can be installed near access doors.
