Reminder: City of Hot Springs Snow Removal Policy

 – By

With recent snowfall in the Hot Springs area, the City of Hot Springs would like to remind residents of the snow removal policy. We have copied the text of the policy below, but it can also be found on the "FAQ" page of the City Website: https://www.hs-sd.org/city-government/faq/

Snow removal will start after the storm has ended unless conditions warrant earlier removal. Sanding will be up to the discretion of the driver and the City. City streets will be cleared to the curb or as close as possible.

The snow plows will make two (2) to three (3) passes on a street, driving lanes first. For proper snow removal and snow melt runoff, any and all obstructions must be removed from the city street prior to the beginning of snow removal.

Main Streets: Snow 2” or less will be removed from Chicago Street, North River Street and University Avenue only

High Use Routes: Snow 2” to 4” will be removed from Main Streets and the High Use Routes which include: Minnekahta Avenue, 23rd Street, Canton Avenue from 23rd to Evanston, Evanston to 6th Street, 6th Street from Detroit to Indianapolis, Galveston Avenue from 6th Street to the Truck Bypass, 14th Street from Galveston Avenue to Canton Avenue, Summit Road, Happy Hollow, 19th and 20th Streets from Truck Bypass to University and 5th Street, Clubhouse Drive, Meadowlark Drive from Clubhouse Drive to Hwy. 71

Hills: Streets that contain a noticeable grade

Snow 4” or more will be removed in order of: Main Streets, High Use Routes, Hills, and then all remaining streets.

Snow fall totals that result in a large windrow will be removed from the curb or pushed to corners and piled on Chicago, Jennings, from Chicago to North River, and North River only after all streets are cleared.

It is the responsibility of the City to clear the streets and in the process, driveways and cars will be blocked. It will not be the responsibility of the City to clear them. We will not and cannot clear driveways or any private property. We will not return if a car is moved after the streets are cleared.

We ask that all cars, trailers, campers, boats, etc. be removed from the streets to lessen the chance of personal property damage and to help us do a better job of snow removal.

As a reminder, City Ordinance, Title VII: Traffic Code, Chapter 70 section 70.09 (D) prohibits snow removed from driveways or parking lots from being deposited onto any public sidewalk or street, except where expressly permitted by the Street Superintendent, so please do not pile snow into these areas.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
