Note on the Plan:

Sweeping Operations will take several weeks to complete. There is a lot of sand to pick up every year, so we ask residents to remain patient. Weather conditions and mechanical issues play a major role in how quickly Public Works can complete the sweeping operations. Heavy rain and subzero temperatures will halt operations.

Posted No Parking Signs Advising Spring Maintenance:

Public Works would like to remind residents that yellow No Parking Signs will be posted to notify that Spring Maintenance will be taking place for daytime operations. Vehicles not complying with these No Parking signs will be ticketed and towed to allow for Street Sweeping crews to advance.

Priority Sequence for Street Sweeping Operations:

Day Operation:

Street Sweeping is never done in the area where Sanitation is taken place.

High density residential areas (Older Section of City: one-ways, narrow streets);

Low density residential areas

Night Operation:

Highway sections;

High density commercial sections;

Main Arterial Routes


A reminder to respect safety signage as the safety of workers is very important.  

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Public Works Department
