So you live in Sioux Falls. It's cold out, it didn't snow that much, and you don't feel like shoveling your sidewalk. Do you have to get out there and clear off the snow?

 Here's what Ordinances for the Sioux Falls City limits

  • All sidewalks are required to be shoveled within 48 hours of when the snowfall ends.  Sidewalks at intersections or crosswalks shall also be cleared to the street.
  • If you don't get your sidewalk shoveled within 48 hours you'll first get a little green note hung on your door telling you that you have an additional 24 hours to clear the snow before facing a fine.
  • If ya don't “Git 'er dun” you're going to get a citation, plus the cost of clearing off your walks. This could add up to some big bucks.
  • If you need to report an unshoveled sidewalk in your neighborhood call 605-978-6900 or go to
