New street sweeping schedule begins this week
The City of Savannah will begin a new street sweeping schedule on Tuesday, January 16. The new schedule will eliminate street sweeping on Friday and Saturday nights.
"Increased parking demand in the downtown area on weekends has resulted in a growing volume of requests and complaints for modification of the City’s street cleaning program to exclude sweeping on Friday and Saturday nights," says a City spokesperson.
"City staff has reviewed potential alternatives to accommodate these requests and has determined the best approach is to adopt a Monday through Thursday evening schedule."
Savannah City Council approved the amendment in October 2017 to modify the City’s street sweeping schedule.
The City’s Sanitation Department has changed the all the street signs to reflect the new street sweeping days and times.
