Sioux Falls residents will vote on snow gates, but not right away.

That gives you, me and everyone else time to get educated.

The city has been studying the gates, testing them in a few neighborhoods, although some residents want them in use RIGHT NOW.

Snow gates are designed so you won't have a ridge across your driveway after the snowplows go through, if that's a hardship for you. The snow has to go someplace, but it won't be in your driveway or across the intersection.

I've talked with people on both sides, and since the vote won't come until 2014 we will all have that kind of opportunity.

So between now and then read the research, talk to people who know and get ready to vote, but not until 2014.
