Leaves are starting to fall in Bishop and the City Public Works crew will be stepping up the street sweeping effort in response. The crew needs help from people that park vehicles on city streets.

Street sweeping for leaves will start tomorrow morning between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. and will continue on this schedule into December. The crew sweeps one side of the street one day and the other side the next day.

To keep out of the way of the sweeper, don’t park on the west and north sides of the streets on Wednesdays while they sweep that side of the street, which have odd number addresses.

Don’t park on the east and south sides of the streets on Thursdays while they sweep that side which has even numbered addresses.

These “don’t park” times only apply on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7-3, other times it’s still okay to park.
