HURON — It should come as no surprise that a snow alert is in effect in Huron following Sunday’s blizzard that broke a record in terms of snowfall.
The alert was declared as of 12:01 a.m. Monday.
No parking is allowed in the downtown core area from midnight until 8 a.m. until the streets are cleared curb to curb.
Snow emergency routes must be free of parked vehicles until they have been cleared.
East-west streets will be cleared on even-numbered days and north-south streets will be plowed on odd-numbered days and no parking is allowed until the work is done.
Copies of the snow removal regulations are available at City Hall, 239 Wisconsin Ave. S.W., and online at www.huronsd.com. Click on “government” and then on “snow removal.”
Violations could result in a $35 fine plus towing and storage costs if the vehicle is removed from the streets.
Huron’s nine inches of snow broke a 54-year-old record of 4.9 inches for the date. Aberdeen broke a 65-year-old record of 8.4 inches Sunday. The previous record for the date was 3.4 inches. Some areas of the region recorded at least a foot of snow.For the complete article see the 02-12-2013 issue.
