The City of Sturgis is still digging out from the recent storm. All major streets have at least one lane open and electricity has been restored to most of the area. Some residents have damage to their meters and secondary lines so they are still without power.
No travel is advised as it hampers snow removal and the ability to get emergency vehicles to their destinations. Residents are also reminded that it is unlawful to push snow into the City streets. Please do not pile snow over or around fire hydrants. If you have storm drains in the street in front of your house, please check to make sure the drains are free from debris.
As the snow melts, blocked drainages can cause flooding.
Residential and commercial trash pickup is suspended until further notice. The City Rubble Site is closed until further notice. City parks are closed due to damaged trees and limbs that are still falling. The Sturgis Airport is open and fuel is available. The Sturgis Community center is open to non-members free of charge and is offering recreational activities as well as hot showers to all residents all week.
The Sturgis Library is open as well. The Sturgis City Council meeting scheduled for October 7 has been postponed until October 15.
