A small topic in the high stakes current environment, but I’ve always wondered: It’s really nice when the city sends a street sweeper through the neighborhood to remove the residual stuff from the fall and winter. It makes a real difference. But the purpose gets defeated when several cars happen to be parked and the sweeper ends up cleaning the middle of the road instead of the parts nearer the curb, where the debris is.

I’m wondering whether it’s possible to send or post an advisory to those living on the streets to be cleaned, asking them to move their cars into their driveways. Or if not that, to post a schedule for street sweeping on the DPW website, like construction is now listed? And like water main flushing.
