Reminder: Street Sweeping app can help you avoid tickets!
This is NO April Fool's joke...The following is a re-post of our blog post from April 10, regarding The Sweeparound.us app. This app will help you schedule your parking, so you can avoid street sweeping tickets. Enforcement for Streetsweeping starts tomorrow, April 1.

That is especially difficult on families with young kids or elderly parents.
