The Department of Public Works is responsible for the street sweeping. Every spring, sweeping begins on the main lines of the city, followed by side streets on a ward-by ward basis. The schedule rotates every year, so that the first ward done in one year is moved to the bottom of the list in the following year. This year the DPW is trying to speed up the time it takes to sweep the entire city by sweeping 11PM to 7 AM as well as 7 AM to 3PM.
Please keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change due to weather or equipment problems. This time line all depends on the SNOW melting. Please note we are doing night sweeping at this time. Wards 5A, 6A, 1A, 2B, 3A and 4A will be done at night. In 2021, wards will be swept in the following order:
|Ward||Scheduled Street Sweeping|
|Ward 5||March 29 - April 6|
|Ward 6||April 7 - April 16|
|Ward 1||April 19 - April 27|
|Ward 2||April 28 - May 7|
|Ward 3||May 10 - May 19|
|Ward 4||May 20 - May 28|
Residents are asked to sweep sidewalks in front of their homes. Sand should be placed in wind rows- not in piles- so that the equipment can successfully remove it.
