City Preps for Snow Storm; Asks for Citizen Cooperation

In anticipation of the major snow storm expected to hit the Pierre area this weekend, the City is asking motorists to remove vehicles from Emergency Snow Routes and to use off-street parking until the storm has passed. City Administrator Kristi Honeywell says that this will help with snow removal and emergency response.

'According to forecasts, we could experience a significant amount of snow and wind,' said Honeywell. 'Having vehicles removed from the side of the road makes navigating the plows and emergency vehicles much easier.'

Given the current forecast, the City expects to deploy salt and sanding operations on Friday and plowing operations on Saturday. Motorists are reminded to drive with caution.
