Street Sweeper Schedule

Seasonal Information:  Standard departmental policy for street sweeping is to begin sweeper routes in April and end in late October.

This activity is very important to remove debris from the gutter line and to keep debris from blocking drainage structures. Street sweeping also promotes a more aesthetic condition within the city.

The existing sweeper route map is based on carrying out one complete sweeping activity at least one time per month per zone.  There are presently 7 zones in the city.  On the basis that removal of parked vehicles enhances sweeping efficiency the zones were created to coincide with established parking regulations.  In general, multiple weeks are identified in the month to account for inclement weather, etc.

For those streets without alternate side parking regulations, it is requested that parked vehicles be moved prior to the dates above so that streets can be swept in a complete manner.
