Snow Removal

Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after a snowfall.

When a snow alert is issued, vehicles must be removed from all streets or will be ticketed towed. Snow alert notices issued to KELO, KDLT & KSFY TV Stations.

If your vehicle has been towed, please contact the Tea Police Department Non-Emergency Phone Number at (605) 498-5577 to locate your vehicle.

Snowplow drivers make every effort to plow as close to the mailboxes as possible. But during heavy snowfalls, especially on cul-de-sacs, it is very difficult to completely clear the snow without risking damage to the mailbox post itself. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the resident to remove snow from around the mailbox to assure uninterrupted delivery of mail. It is also the homeowner's responsibility to repair broken mailboxes due to snow coming off of the plow blade.
