City Declares Snow Emergency

The City of Yankton declared a snow emergency this afternoon.

The snow emergency goes into effect at midnight.

City Manager Amy Leon says that this is the fourth snow emergency that the city has declared since January.

Leon says that during this time, the city is asking for vehicles that are parked on city streets to be removed.

Yankton Police Chief Jason Foote says that vehicles that are not removed within 24 hours will receive a tow tag and then have another 24 hours to remove the vehicle before it is ticketed and towed.
