Mayor Sam Tidball loved parades and loved
flags. To honor him and his service to this
community, the City of Fort Pierre is asking
residents of both Fort Pierre and Pierre to come
out on Saturday and pay their respects as the
funeral procession passes by.
Mayor Gloria Hanson, of Fort Pierre, is
asking that flags in Fort Pierre be hung at
half-staff between sunrise and sunset on
Saturday, the day of Mayor Tidball's funeral.
The Exchange Club has also been contacted to
display the flags on the Missouri River bridge.
The funeral procession will leave the
Congregational United Church of Christ about 11
a.m., proceed down Highland Avenue to Sioux
Avenue, turn right and drive down Sioux Avenue,
and cross the bridge into Fort Pierre. The
procession will then continue on Highway 83
through Fort Pierre, turning right on 2rd Avenue
turn right again onto Verendrye Drive to the
Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center.
Hanson said, "It would be most meaningful to
the Tidball family if Sam's many friends could
line the streets and roadways to honor him. And
if you hold a sign or flag as the procession
passes by, that would be appropriate, too."
The City of Fort Pierre is planning to
display city equipment as well as flags as a
tribute to Mayor Tidball.

With the recent and continued snowfall in excess of 2
inches of snow, the City of Fort Pierre will start
plowing the emergency snow routes at 3:30 pm CDT today.
Secondary streets will follow the emergency routes. We
ask that residents please move any cars, trucks,
trailers or campers off the street to allow snow plows
to get through if necessary. Any vehicle in direct
violation of this ordinance shall be fined $50.00 and
the actual cost of removal and towing if not removed

City ordinances require that â€œthere shall be no
parking on the emergency snow routes when there is more
than two (2) inches of snowfall until the said routes
have been cleared to the edges of the street.â€ Also a
reminder, that with snow continuing to fall the plows
may pass thru the routes more than once so please be
alert to further snow accumulations.
