Street Sweeping started Wednesday, April 1st in the 2nd Ward. 

The Department of Streets and Sanitation will be making an attempt to sweep areas with permanent metal posted signs on established, scheduled days. Streets that normally have orange cardboard signs adhered to trees will not be posted, however, the street sweeper will also attempt to sweep those streets as best they can.


Vehicles that do not move on scheduled street sweeping days will not be ticketed or towed. If you are healthy and able to move your vehicle on your scheduled day, your help is appreciated.

The sweeper will continue free-lancing and hitting mains, viaducts, centers, frontage roads, and areas that may be accessible. We respectfully request that you assist the 2nd Ward by moving your vehicle on your scheduled street sweeping day to clear the catch basins, the debris in the street, and the latex gloves and masks strewn about.

If you feel as though you are at risk or you are sick, please do not go outside.
