Street sweep­ing un­der­way in Swift Cur­rent

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
