It’s baaackkk!  It’s that time of year again! Birds are chirping.  It’s staying light out later. And the big yellow street sweeper will be cleaning your neighborhood streets.  So be warned, parking restriction associated with street cleaning begins this week. If you are parked on the wrong side of the street, you will receive a $40 orange ticket and your car will get towed.  And that’s no fun.  So check the parking signs on your street and figure out which side it is safe to park. So consider yourself warned!  A street sweeping schedule and information is available at http://www.cityofboston.gov/publicworks/sweeping/  At this web link, Southie residents can also register for “No Tow”, a service provided by the city for residents to be reminded by email when their street is scheduled for cleaning. That’s so helpful!
