Fall Street Sweeping
The City's Street Maintenance Division is about to start fall street sweeping. Posting of streets will begin on Monday, October 22, with sweeping beginning on Tuesday, October 23.
The City's website will feature the “Street Lookup,” where you can see the sweeping schedule online to learn exactly when your street is scheduled for cleaning. It will be available by Monday, October 22 at the latest.
The schedule dates shown on the web based mapping application can sometimes change due to weather or other unforeseen factors. Public Works does its best to keep these schedule changes to an absolute minimum. Residents are always responsible to be aware of any parking restrictions, and move their vehicles when needed.
Vehicles parked on city streets in violation of temporary no parking signs will be towed to the Minneapolis Municipal Impound Lot. Call 311 to find out whether or not a vehicle has been towed. The Impound Lot is located at 51 Colfax Avenue North; this is west of Lyndale Avenue, two blocks south of Glenwood Avenue. Watch for directional signs. Fees are $138.00 for towing and $18.00 a day for storage. The Impound Lot accepts cash, personal checks, Visa and MasterCard. In addition to towing and storage charges, there is a $34.00 ticket for the parking violation.
Please note the new Impound Lot hours of operation effective October 14, 2007. They are:
· Monday - Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.,
· Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
