Less Sweeping, Less Money

New, 5 comments

The city's new reduced street-sweeping schedule for western neighborhoods was forecast from the beginning to mean less parking tickets, but it was supposed to save the city money because those areas apparently aren't quite as grimy. Turns out that without those parking tickets, the city's losing four times more money than it's saving (oops). Total annual loss from those happy parkers now: somewhere between $1.6 million and $3.8 million. [SF Gate, previously]
