The snow may have stopped on Wednesday, but people are still digging out their driveways and sidewalks.
"Well, it's cold today, but the snow blows pretty good, it's light, except where I ran over it, that doesn't help," Duane Coatsworth said.
Coatsworth is one of many in Sioux Falls who are following the snow removal policy, which says that 48 hours after the last snowfall, sidewalks need to be cleared off.
"They've done a good job, yeah, getting the sidewalks cleaned off for kids going to school and anybody else that maybe don't need to be out there," Coatsworth said.
Certain sidewalks may be clear right now, but for others in the city, that's certainly not the case. For those who are not shoveling out their sidewalks two to three days after the snowfall, they could be facing a fine.
"The neighbor over here, she ain't shoveled out yet. I don't know, we just get up and do it," Tony Sandner said.
Don't do it and they City will come out and clean it for you. The problem is that will mean a $100 ticket for you plus the bill for what it costs City crews to cleanup the sidewalk.
"That's probably fair if they don't go overboard on the charge," Coatsworth said.
Tony Sandner, just like Coatsworth, spent extra time out of his day helping neighborhoods by cleaning off their sidewalks.
"Half a day or so. I go around the neighborhood after my blowers get going and blow a bit here and there for them," Sandner said.
They don't mind the extra work which could be saving people the costs of a City citation.
"It's no problem for me to go down the block and come back with a snow blower, it's just a walk. I think the neighbors appreciate it," Coatsworth said.
Since the 48 hour deadline fell at 5:00 p.m Friday afternoon, the City tells us it will be Monday before crews start checking out complaints about uncleared sidewalks. If your sidewalk is on a complaint list, you'll get a door hanger giving you another 24 hours to clean up your act. Only after that will you risk a fine and cleanup costs.
