Street sweeping to begin in Minneapolis, parking restrictions enforced

Over the course of the next four weeks, the Minneapolis Public Works crew will sweep all 1,100 miles of city streets.
The annual clean-up is meant to remove the grime, dirt and sand that was left behind from the MInnesota snow of 2010-11.
If weather permits, the sweeping will begin on Tuesday, according to a report from Kare 11 News.
Restrictions that residents should be aware of include no parking from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the day the street is swept. To aide those who will be affected, "No Parking" signs will be put into place.
In order to avoid fines and tickets, the City of Minneapolis is advising residents to keep their vehicles off the street until those signs are removed.
Although this may be an inconvenience to some, the city assures that "sweeping keeps leaves and debris from clogging storm drains and polluting lakes and rivers," according to a report from the Star Tribune.
To prepare citizens living in Minneapolis, the city will make approximately 3,500 automated phone call each night to let residents know that their street will be swept the following day.
