TROY, NY (May 11, 2022) – With the completion of the City’s annual Spring Street Cleanup program, city officials today are reminding Collar City residents to observe posted alternate-side parking restrictions near their homes or businesses to comply with normal street cleaning operations, scheduled to resume Monday, May 16th.
Enforcement of these parking restrictions will begin Monday, May 16th. Vehicles parked illegally will be ticketed and towed, both at the owners’ expense.
Commissioner of General Services Chuck Wojton said, “Moving your vehicle in accordance with alternate side parking restrictions will maximize the effectiveness of street sweeping work in neighborhoods across the city and help you avoid a costly parking ticket & tow fee. Please do your part by observing all normal parking restrictions on your street. Our hard-working Public Works crews thank you for your cooperation in advance.”
