Use this to Track Street-Sweeping and Avoid $60 Fine

As the weather warms up around the city, you may notice a lot more parked cars with that dreaded bright orange envelope. Yes, street-sweeping season is amongst us all, which means you better be on top of your game to avoid throwing $60 down the drain for leaving your car in a designated sweeping zone.

You can stay ahead of the game, using the city’s new online tool that provides residents and visitors a way to track when the next street sweep is taking place in the neighborhood. The tracker website does not alert you when a sweep is nearby, rather, it will tell you where the sweepers are and when the next scheduled sweep is taking place on your street.

Signs will still be posted as usual at least 24 hours in advance of a street sweep. Street and Sanitation crews will continue cleaning streets until early November, as weather permits.
