Pennington County officials would like to pass along a few reminders as residents begin the clean-up process after last week’s storm.
For questions on the responsibility of debris please refer to city code 12.33: Trees.
Crews will clear hazardous debris away from sidewalks and roads that are safety hazards to the public. If crews are in roadways, officials ask you slow down and give them room. Residents are asked to please keep clear of crews as they work.
Do not park under trees or debris and keep vehicles clear and allow room for crews to work.
When transporting debris to drop sites you are required to secure the load for safety. Show patience and be courteous as many are trying to access the drop off sites.
Fitzgerald Stadium on Sheridan Lake Road may be busy with traffic, so consider utilizing one of the other drop off sites at either the Central States Fairgrounds or the Civic Center Overflow Parking Lot.
Residents are asked to stay off the bike path and away from all water ways. Officials also ask to be cautious around fallen or partially fallen trees and not to let children play around them.
As school starts to open, remind children to stay away from downed power lines.
For any questions regarding debris removal, electrical repairs, roof damage, basic needs like food, shelter, or animal removal from agricultural properties are encouraged to call 211. Those experiencing emotional distress can also call for listening and support or to find counseling resources.
Agencies who need volunteers or if you are looking to volunteer should also dial 211.
