As broadcast on these Commercial Street electronic signs, the Department of Public Works is telling North End residents that it will start ticketing and towing cars that are not moved on street cleaning days, starting December 14th. The notice is part of the expanded pilot program which continued mechanical street sweeping into December. For the past two weeks, only warnings were given by authorities.
At this week’s NEWRA meeting, Kathy Carangelo from Councilor Sal LaMattina’s office said there have been no issues so far with the expanded program. Mechanical street cleaning will end on December 31st and resume again on March 1st.
Separately, the Councilor and city officials will be doing a walkthrough of sidewalks for a Spring fix-up program. Residents can identify sidewalk concerns by calling the Councilor’s office at 617-635-3200.
