Do You Support An Increase In Street Sweeping?
South Enders will have two extra months of street sweeping this year, but is this good news?
It's official: expect swept streets to begin in March and end in December.
The city has a "Know Tow" automated alert system for those who will have trouble adjusting from the old April-November schedule, and signs are planned to go up in January alerting residents of the changes.
Street-sweeping days are also planned to follow trash collection days, either by "one or two days," per the Mayor's Office. And according to Menino in our other story on the subject, "by realigning the street sweeping schedule to match the weekly trash collection operations, we’re smartly maximizing the potential of each program to keep our streets clean.”
How do you feel about all this? Is this a step in the right direction or a move to increase revenue from tickets and towing? The comments section is open for business!
