Snow Alert for the City of Sioux Falls

Sioux Falls, South Dakota: The Public Works Street Division has declared a snow alert. Plowing of emergency snow routes began at noon and will continue until routes are clear. All vehicles parked on emergency snow routes are subject to immediate ticketing and towing.

Zone 1: Snow pickup operations in Zone 1 will begin at 1 a.m. on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. Vehicles parked in Zone 1 will be subject to ticketing and towing between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. During a snow alert, parking is prohibited in the downtown area between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.

General snow removal information is available on the City’s website at www.siouxfalls.org/snow and on cable channel CityLink.

Those removing snow from downtown sidewalks should be reminded that they should scoop the snow into the gutterpans, not into the street.

If you are unsure what snow zone you are in, or where the zone boundaries are located, use the online interactive map, which allows you to pinpoint your zone by address. This is available at www.siouxfalls.org/snow.

You may subscribe to email snow alert notifications at www.siouxfalls.org/snow.

Property owners are reminded that the City of Sioux Falls requires all public sidewalks cleared of ice and snow within 48 hours after completion of each snow or ice accumulation. Sidewalks at intersections or crosswalks shall also be cleared to the street—City Ordinance, Section 96.100.
