Who is responsible for the sidewalk in front of my house?

The property owner is responsible for the repair and maintenance of sidewalks, by South Dakota State law.  Any property owner, who fails to maintain their sidewalk in a safe condition is considered negligent in their duties as a property owner, and is liable for injuries which may occur due to its lack of maintenance. It is further required that property owners or renters of property within the City of Huron, shovel the snow from their sidewalk  to allow for pedestrian passage.
