ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Here’s a sign of spring: street sweeping begins Monday in St. Paul.
All city streets will be swept over the next four weeks. Residents are reminded to move their cars once their street is posted. Signs will be placed 24 hours before a street is swept.
Public Works Director Rich Lallier says periodic street sweeping is part of St. Paul’s environmental efforts. Lallier says the sweeping removes debris that can harm the water quality of lakes and streams.
And if you don’t move your car, Lallier says that has the effect of blocking three parking spaces because of the sweeping equipment’s limited maneuverability.
