STREET CLEANING TO RESUME IN BOSTON’S NEIGHBORHOODS “NO PARKING – STREET CLEANING” REGULATIONS EFFECTIVE APRIL 3

     Boston’s Neighborhood Street Cleaning Program will resume on April 3, 2006.  A joint effort of the Public Works Department, the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services and the Boston Transportation Department, the program provides for most neighborhood streets to be cleaning twice a month from April through November.

     The city is looking for the cooperation of residents and businesses in removing their vehicles during the posted street cleaning day on each street.  Mayor Thomas M. Menino said, “The neighborhood street cleaning program starting on April 3 will rid the city’s streets of the sand and refuse that has built up over the past few months, but the cooperation of neighborhood residents is needed.  I am asking drivers to please make sure that they move their cars on designated days so that the sweepers can get to the curb.”

The Boston Transportation Department urges residents to park in accordance with the posted street cleaning restrictions so that cars do not hinder the quality of the job to be completed.  Throughout the city, signs are posted indicating the street cleaning schedule for that particular street.

     Parking Enforcement Officers will enforce the “No Parking – Street Cleaning” regulations.  Parking tickets, carrying an increased fine of $40.00, will be issued beginning on April 3rd.  This fine increase was implemented by an order of the Boston City Council.  The increase was enacted as an extra incentive to have residents remove their vehicles from the curb on street cleaning day.  Vehicles parked in violation of this regulation may also be subject to towing and an additional charge of $90.00.  For further information, please call the Boston Transportation Department Hotline at 617-635-4-BTD.
