2014 Town-wide Spring Street Sweeping Begins April 7, 2014
The Public Works Department will begin the Town-wide spring street sweeping schedule on Monday, April 7th with route 20. Routes are generally swept sequentially, the last route being 35. During this spring sweep when they get to 35, they will go to route 1 and complete the sweep on route 19. Weather permitting, the spring sweep should conclude in Ma.
Please note, according to the Town bylaw, Prohibition Against Obstructing Public Ways, it is forbidden to deposit debris in public ways. It is OK to sweep sand into street, but no leaf litter. To help us perform the best possible job, please park your cars off-street during your scheduled week. Parked cars prevent a clean sweep. The DPW will not return to sweep streets due to cars parked during the initial visit.
The Town will be updating the schedule below weekly (Mondays) until the sweep is completed.
