Street sweeping underway in Swift Current
Street sweeping operations have now been underway in the City of Swift Current for a full week.
Crews have completed work in five of the 15 zones set up during their 2018 street sweeping schedule. The remainder of the Residential Street Sweeping Program will continue through to the end of May.
The City of Swift Current’s Streets and Roadways Department is hoping for the assistance of city residents over the coming weeks to help make their job easier.
Residents are urged to move their vehicles when notified of sweeping in their area, in order to facilitate the complete curb-to-curb sweeping of their streets. Crews begin as early as 6 a.m. and work through to 5 p.m. daily. When vehicles are not moved off the street, sweepers have to move around the obstruction, leaving debris behind.
Signage is placed in advance in areas scheduled for sweeping operations in order to give residents notice to park their vehicles in an alternate off-street location. Additionally, the city-wide street sweeping schedule is designed around front-street collection of Smart Carts to avoid disruptions in service.
Work will continue according to the following schedule:
Zone 7 - Thursday, May 3
Zone 8 & 11 - Monday, May 7
Zone 14 - Tuesday, May 8
Zone 2 - Wednesday, May 9
Zone 9 - Thursday, May 10
Zone 13 - Monday, May 14
Zone 10 - Tuesday, May 15
Zone 1 & 15 - Wednesday, May 16 In case of rain, the City has set aside May 29 to 31 as dates to complete street sweeping work.
