Alternate Side Parking to Resume for a Week for ‘Clean Sweep’

May 11, 2020 By Christian Murray

Mayor Bill de Blasio is bringing back alternate side parking for a week—in order to conduct a “clean sweep.”

The mayor said this morning that alternate side parking will go into effect the week of May 18 though May 24 so that all the trash that has been accumulating in recent weeks can be cleared.

He said he decided to reinstate the requirement after consultation with the Sanitation Department.

“We’ve said from the start we have to keep an eye on how our neighborhoods are looking,” de Blasio said. “We want to keep them clean.”

The city will suspend alternate parking again for the following two weeks from May 25 through June 7.  He will that the Sanitation Department will determine during that time whether the suspension will be extended.

This has apparently not made people clean up after themselves. It’s a shame we live amongst pigs.
