Sioux Falls, SD (KELO AM) - Be prepared for parking restrictions when snow alerts are declared. The City of Sioux Falls is now offering a text alert service to notify residents of snow alerts. To subscribe send a text with the word SNOW to 605-413-1990, or go to www.siouxfalls.org/snow to subscribe to text, email, or social media notifications.
“We’re excited about being able to provide another way for residents to be notified when a snow alert is declared,” says Galynn Huber, Street and Fleet Operations Manager. “Snow removal is so much more effective and efficient when citizens are aware of parking restrictions and remove their cars from the streets.”
If you park on an emergency snow route, be especially aware of weather conditions. After two inches of snow has fallen (day or night), all vehicles parked on emergency snow routes are subject to ticketing and towing at the owner’s expense. A snow alert is declared if the City plans to plow all streets. At this time, parking restrictions go into effect across the city, and vehicles parked on all streets are subject to ticketing and towing.
To subscribe to snow alert notifications or for more information about snow removal, go towww.siouxfalls.org/snow. The website includes a snow zones map, information about snow alert regulations, tips on how to stay safe this winter, and much more.
