Concentrated street sweeping began over the weekend of April 13th and is expected to continue until April 24. Operations take place from 7 am to 7 pm in designated areas. During this time, residents may see signs posted indicating that no parking is allowed in certain areas. We ask that residents respect the signs, or they may be ticketed or towed. Street sweeping is important for keeping roads clear and safe, and to remove debris from the roadway. This year, we experienced more ice than normal and the result is a significant amount of grit on the roadways which our vehicles will remove. When cars are left on the roadway during sweeping operations, we are not able to be as effective with our cleaning.
Street sweeping operations are also taking place outside the core concentrated sweeping area. These operations are expected to continue through the month of May and include both City operators and contractors. Those sweeping outside of the core concentrated area do not have the same parking restrictions, and sweeping may occur outside of the 7 am – 7 pm timeframe.
