Sturgis City Council discuss updating their sidewalk ordinance

STURGIS, S.D.(KBHB) – The Sturgis City Council has begun discussion on revisions to its sidewalks ordinance.

Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie says they are looking at making some changes to coincide with state law and to address some concerns from residents.

Ainslie says the property owner would then be responsible for repair.

However, he says, because that can get expensive, the city wants to be able to provide some help.

Ainslie says homeowners should also be aware that it is their responsibility to keep their sidewalks free from ice and snow in the winter.

The council has not yet held a reading on any of the proposed revisions.
