Mayor Marty Walsh announced on Wednesday that Monday is the day – the day the city starts picking up your spot savers and chucking them.  Say goodbye to your orange traffic cones, your beach chairs, your ironing boards and such – you’ve got the weekend to savor them.  

The mayor asks that we “remain respectful of their neighbors and their property as the process of space-saver removal begins.”  Remember, you don’t want to be “that guy” who keeps his spot saver out way longer than necessary.  Nobdy likes “that guy.”

Insider’s tip:
This is perfect excuse to put that old computer monitor, TV or futon out in your spot for the city to haul away.

    No offense to anyone really. But I recently had back surgery. I have a 2 yr old. There's a reason my husband broke his back shoveling our car out. As well as a walkway in front of our house. My neighbor we've known for years and a man around our corner who snowblower the entire side were the only nice work- together people who gave a damn. Not any other of our so-called "neighbors" barely shoveled their sidewalk. Our walkway to the street is the only walkway on the whole block. So everyone throws their dirty trash I front of my house on trash night. Not only are there 12 ft snow mounds taking up more than half my street, but I live across from A school. Drop off and pick up hours make my street complete gridlock. It's gridlock in summer, nevermind what is outside. So…. I'm keeping my spot for as long as I can.

    Isn't it a bit hypocritical to tell people to remove their spot markers when you still mark the spot in front of your house on M Street? (I am sure this comment will not get posted)

    I don't blame you!
