South Dakota: State legislature looks to remove power to set recall from City Council's hands
This comes out of the recall attempt against Hartford Mayor Bill Campbell, which never made it to the ballot it due to the work of the City Council. Though there is an amendment that would protect the judicial recall/malfeasance standard nature of the recall. The state does not provide for political recalls, so there is little doubt the recall will go to court.
