Leaves are falling in Bishop and the city crew will be stepping up the street sweeping effort in response. The crew needs help to make this effort be as effective as possible.
Starting in November and continuing into December, the crew will be sweeping each Wednesday and Thursday between about 7 am and 3 pm. The crew will attempt to sweep every street in the City of Bishop each week.
To keep vehicles parked on City of Bishop streets out of the way of the sweepers: Don’t park on the west and north sides of city streets on Wednesdays. The north and west sides of the streets have odd-numbered addresses. Don’t park on the east and south sides of city streets on Thursdays. The east and south sides of the streets have even-numbered addresses. These “don’t park” times only apply when street sweeping is in progress – each Wednesday and Thursday from 7 to 3. Other times it is still okay to park.
The crew can not sweep the street if vehicles are parked in the way. Also, properties along the streets are responsible for the removal of their own leaves. Don’t put your leaves on city streets. It overloads the sweeper, makes it much more difficult to do a good sweeping job, and costs more money.
