As part of the efforts to keep streets clean and maintain high neighborhood standards, the City will begin the new season of Public Service Days the week of April 7.

Parking rules will be enforced. Residents are required to keep parked vehicles off neighborhood streets 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on their trash days, which are also Public Service Days.  

Tickets will be issued to cars parked on the street on a neighborhood’s trash day/Public Service Day. Tickets will also be issued to vehicles parked across sidewalks, on the easement or on lawns.

Also note that trash and recycling carts should not be in the road at any time.

“Public Service Days allow us to sweep the streets curb to curb, and do other important maintenance work,” said Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr.

“Residents across the city pay for services with their taxes, and they deserve to have them delivered in their neighborhoods in a thorough and effective manner,” O’Reilly said. “Keeping parked cars off the streets gives us that chance.”

Public Service Days also permit more efficient and safe collection of trash, recyclables and yard waste set at the curb. In addition, crews can better manage tree-trimming and sewer and catch basin maintenance.

When visiting someone in a different neighborhood in Dearborn, it is a good idea to check to see when trash days/Public Service Days fall in their area.

In each neighborhood, multiple street signs list the days parking restrictions are in place.  

The City recognizes that keeping vehicles off the streets can be an inconvenience for residents, and so in the winter months suspends Public Service Days when it is less likely that maintenance could be performed. Public Service Days will end for the season Nov. 29, 2014.

I think that they should do this year around and it would be less confusing. Some may disagree, but that is why we have driveways and garages. For those that don't, there must be other solutions.

They need to come up with a "designated parking" program for those who don't have a driveway or if there is not enough room to fit all the cars in the driveway. Otherwise these tickets are unfair taxation and should be flat out illegal

"In each neighborhood, multiple street signs list the days parking restrictions are in place." I have lived in my house for 13 years, have driven to other neighborhoods frequently, and have yet to see one sign that outlines any neighborhood's "service days".
