A resident recently contacted me with a concern about the city's public works department and how street sweeping is handled.
He said it seems that the city's street sweeping hours are too early for most residents because, on some streets, residents have to park on the street and parking can be difficult to find. If a resident's car is still parked on the street by the time a street sweeper comes by, and he hasn't yet left for work, that means that street won't be cleaned.
The city has posted its street sweeping schedule on its website and says that most streets are sweeped twice a month.
But the resident said the hours still need to be changed, and he proposed that street sweeping hours be changed to later in the day after most people have left for work. What do you think?
