Street Sweeping Back in Effect

Street Sweeping Back in Effect

The City of Alameda announced late last week it resumed street sweeping service June 15, according to posted schedules. The city asks those continuing to telework or who can be home to slow the spread of COVID-19, to park vehicles in driveways or other off-street parking areas when possible. The service is designed to help keep city streets clean of debris and safe for all modes of travel.

For the last two months, the Alameda Police Department has not issueed parking violations to vehicles parked on the street during posted street sweeping times. However, as the shelter-in-place restrictions loosen, the city will begin parking enforcement during posted street sweeping times with a courtesy notice to violators for the first two weeks.

On Wednesday, June 29, tickets will be issued to those in violation of posted street sweeping signs.  Resumption of enforcement is necessary to ensure the sweeper can actually reach the curb to clean the streets.
