The No Parking Ordinance is NOT a street sweeping ordinance. Street sweeping is only one activity that the No Parking Ordinance was designed to accommodate. The No Parking Ordinance provides an opportunity for city workers and contractors to provide a variety of services to the city’s residents. This ranges from utility repairs, street repairs, maintenance, weed spraying, street sweeping, painting, tree maintenance, brush and leaf collection, etc.. NO, you cannot park after the street sweeper has passed if it is still within the times posted.
