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.”
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!
