Mayor Menino Reminds Residents: Neighborhood Street Cleaning to Begin on April 1st; City continues aggressive cleanup as Spring arrives in Boston
 
Mayor Thomas M. Menino today reminded residents that Boston’s Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning Program will kick-off for the season on Friday, April 1, 2011. After an especially harsh winter, the Mayor last month implemented an early and aggressive cleanup plan, directing city agencies and departments to work together and with businesses and residents in a more coordinated approach to ready the City of Boston for spring.


"Once the snow and ice melted this year, the City’s fleet of street sweepers was dispatched to begin cleaning up local streets that were especially hard hit during this tough winter,” Mayor Menino said. "Keeping Boston clean is a top priority of mine, as well as the residents of Boston, and we all look forward to seeing Boston sparkle as we welcome the spring season."

In addition to street sweeping, Public Works has dispatched its Pothole Patrol teams which have been aggressively seeking and filling potholes since the snow melted. Each day the department has more than eight crews deployed throughout the city and have so far patched more than 3,600 potholes this season. Crews have been utilizing the city’s newest weapon against potholes, a cutting-edge pothole filling truck nicknamed “Potzilla”. New this year, the machine provides a one-stop pothole patching method for more efficient repairs.

The Daytime Neighborhood Street Cleaning Program is a cooperative effort of the Mayor's Office, the Public Works Department, the Department of Innovation and Technology, and the Transportation Department. Neighborhood streets throughout the city will be swept clean on a rotating schedule each week through November 30th. Vehicles are required to be moved in accordance with the posted Street Cleaning regulations. Since parked vehicles prohibit the equipment from getting to the curb, the street cleaning parking regulations are strictly enforced. Vehicles parked in violation of the posted regulations are subject to a $40 ticket as well as towing. All towing for street cleaning violations is conducted by private tow operators at the sole expense of the vehicle owner. Residents and other drivers are encouraged to register for “No-Tow” email reminders and can comprehensive street sweeping schedule information can be found at
