Fall street sweeping set to begin Sept. 24

Weather permitting, street sweeping will begin Monday, Sept. 24, and continue for approximately five working days between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m.

When sweepers are in the neighborhood, all vehicles should be moved from the streets so the entire street can be cleaned. In addition, please be sure to place trash cans behind the curb on your scheduled trash pick-up day. Note that recreational items such as basketball hoops, hockey nets and skateboard ramps are not allowed in the street; please remove these items. See Chapter 24-Zoning, Section 24-281.D2 (Residential Districts) in the City Code for more information.

To increase the effectiveness of street sweeping, residents are encouraged to rake their yards so that any excess dirt and other materials can be picked up by the sweepers.

Street sweeping is done to remove debris, accumulated dirt and sand, and other material before it is washed into the storm sewer. Removing the material while it is still on the street is more efficient than removing this material from storm water ponds and helps protect water quality in city lakes and wetlands.

Residents are reminded that inclement weather may cause delay in fall maintenance activities.

Questions about spring maintenance activities can be directed to the Public Works Department, (651) 714-3720 or
