So you live in Sioux Falls. it’s cold out and you don’t feel like shoveling your sidewalk after a big snow. Don’t worry about it … if you don’t mind paying some big bucks.
Here’s what’s what according to the Sioux Falls City Ordinances
-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 $100 citation, plus the cost of clearing off your walks. This could add up to several hundred dollars.
