The City of Ithaca plans to begin street cleaning operations on South Hill on Monday, March 19. The affected streets will be posted with “No Parking” signs 24 hours in advance of the cleaning. All vehicles parked on the street after 7:00 a.m. on the day of the scheduled cleaning will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense. The standard towing rate in the City of Ithaca is $100 plus sales tax, and storage fees are $25 per day.
Unfortunately, each year a number of people have their vehicles towed because they were not aware of the upcoming work and did not see or heed the signs posted on the streets. The city’s goal is to reduce the number of tows, which will save both residents and the city money, time, and inconvenience.
Students who park on the street should watch for signs and check on their cars daily from March 19–April 20, as street cleaning operations will move throughout the city during the next five weeks. This work is weather permitting and may need to be rescheduled in case of inclement weather. If you will be away during this time, please make other parking arrangements for your vehicle.
People in need of long-term parking arrangements can call the City Chamberlain’s office at 274-6580 to inquire about the availability of long-term permits in the parking garages, or find information on the office’s website.
The complete street cleaning schedule is posted on the city’s website.
Questions or concerns about the street cleaning program can be forwarded to the Streets and Facilities Office at 272-1718.
