Street Cleaning, or lack thereof

Location: 
DEAN STREET between SIXTH and CARLTON
When: 
May 5, 2011 - 1:06pm

With the impact of the AY project and all of the additional vehicles, the many, many city workers that have placards that allow them to park pretty much anywhere they want are encroaching on what little parking is left on surrounding streets. Everyday I watch the sanitation mechanical sweepers have to swerve around the many cars that block their path, even as the street cleaning regulation would lead you to believe that the path should be clear. The result: the streets are even more filthy than they already are. The city does not address this in any other way, so the pile up of debris allows the mushrooming rat population to flourish. It is a disgusting and unhealthy situation. The people who park these vehicles could care less - they don't have to live here, and it is obvious that they don't give a damn about the community they are here, ostensibly to serve.
