San Francisco to Cut Street Cleaning to Save Money

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Aug 29, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO -- In order to cut spending, the city of San Francisco decided to reduce street sweeping from once a week to twice a month in some areas, the Sing Tao Daily reports. The change will start in the Marina, Pacific Heights and Jordan Park districts first, and will then be spread across other districts. About 15,000 street sweeping signs will be replaced, and the city's $13 million street sweeping budget will be reduced by approximately $1 million. San Francisco residents have different opinions about the change. Some will need to move their car twice a month instead of four times a month for street sweeping, meaning fewer ticketseven though the fines have been increased from $40 to $50. Other residents are complaining, however, that they're paying the same taxes but receiving less public service.
