Fall street sweep
Attached is the Fall Street Sweeping program that begins Oct. 19. All 10 neighbourhoods below have been confirmed:
2. City Park
4. North Park
5. Caswell Hill
6. Varsity View
8. King George
9. Holiday Park
10. Buena Vista
Some other information to note:
1) As with previous sweeps, bright yellow No Parking signs will be out in neighbourhoods at least 36 hours in advance of sweeping. Vehicles that have not been moved by 7 a.m. the morning of the sweep may be ticketed and towed to a nearby street or neighbourhood. Residents can find relocated vehicles using the Where’s My Vehicle app on the City Website, or by calling 306-975-2476.
2) Some neighbourhoods are being swept over three days to allow residents to find alternate parking during the sweep.
3) School zones will not be swept during the Fall program due to concerns over the safety of children near large machinery. The small amount of leaves in these areas will not affect spring drainage.
4) Finally, we are reminding residents that City Bylaws prohibit pushing, blowing or sweeping leaves onto the street. Residents who are found doing this may receive a Bylaw Notice. More importantly, excess leaves may cause the sweepers to delay or skip cleaning a street, which in turn may reduce spring drainage and cause flooding on the affected street. Residents are encouraged to use their Green Carts, or the City’s FREE compost depots, which are open until November 6, to dispose of their yard waste.
All of the above information is also being communicated via a press release on Friday, through radio ads and digital advertising.
Feel free to share this information with those who may be interested.
