DEARBORN, Michigan – Dearborn is an appealing and pleasant place to live, known for its well-maintained neighborhoods. To preserve that level of maintenance, the City of Dearborn will begin the 2011 season for Public Service Days during the week of April 4.
Parked vehicles must be off the street from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during a neighborhood’s Public Service Day. Parked vehicles left on the street during a Public Service Day will be ticketed.
Public Service Days are the same day as trash collection day in a neighborhood.
If your trash is picked up on Monday, your Public Service Day is Monday. If your trash day is Tuesday, your Public Service Day is Tuesday. The pattern continues through the rest of the week.
Knowing when your Public Service Day occurs is important, because tickets will be issued to owners of parked vehicles left on the streets during Public Service Days.
Since Public Service Days are scheduled differently in neighborhoods throughout the City, it is important to ask friends and relatives what their Public Service Day is before parking on the street when visiting.
Remember, on Public Service Days, vehicles in a driveway may be parked across the public sidewalk without penalty, but parking on the grass is always prohibited.
Signs in every neighborhood alert drivers to the Public Service Days applicable on the surrounding blocks.
Public Service Days allow the city to provide neighborhoods with services like street-sweeping, loose leaf collection, tree trimming, and sewer maintenance, in a safe, effective manner.
