Trimming of Trees and/or Hedges
Residents of the City of Pierre are being reminded of their responsibility to trim trees and/or hedges adjacent to streets and sidewalks so that they meet city ordinance Section 6-4-104. To assist you, the City of Pierre has measuring poles that can be checked out by residents to determine proper height of a tree over a sidewalk or street. You may check them out at City hall. A deposit of $20.00 will be required which is returned to you when the measuring poles are returned.
Street closures must be approved by the Pierre City Commission. To request a street closure, please complete the Street Closure Form and use the email button within the form, or print and submit it to City Hall.
Questions on street closures can be directed to Lynn Patton, Construction and Operations Manager, at 605-773-7407.
