Sioux Falls to send text messages during snow alerts
The city of Sioux Falls making it easier for you to be prepared for snow alerts this winter.
Wednesday, the city announced it's 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
"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, the city says you should be 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.
