CALGARY – The streets in Calgary will be redesigned annually starting Monday with the start of the city’s street cleaning program.
This weekend signs will appear in the neighborhood letting vehicle owners know when to move.
Street cleaning takes place during business hours from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The aim is to remove debris and debris that has accumulated on roads and paths during the winter months to prevent it from entering the rainwater system.
Officials say enforcement of necessary parking bans will be back to normal this year.
This year things are back to normal from a Calgary Parking Authority enforcement perspective.
“During street cleaning, the Calgary Parking Authority uses our automated vehicles, or camera cars, as these are a quick and efficient way to enforce parking bans for street cleaning,” said Todd Sullivan, CPA coordinator for parking security and compliance.
“It’s a good reminder that if you don’t move your vehicle, you won’t see a ticket on the windshield, it will come in the mail.”
With many Calgarians still working from home, Sullivan says they need to remember to move their vehicles.
You can find information on street sweeping on the city’s website.
“It’s a great resource for our street sweeper program, and is a great way to sign up for automated notifications for the street sweeper in your community and to ask questions about the program to our new virtual assistant,” said Chris McGeachy, spokesman for the street department.
Street cleaning in residential areas is expected to continue until June 2021.
The annual street cleaning budget is $ 9.8 million and covers more than 16,000 kilometers of lane.
Temperatures are expected to be in double digits this week, including a high of 19 ° C on Saturday. However, the forecast foresees the possibility of rain and even some snow on Sunday.
