  1. It’s unfortunate that WPD and the WDPW are not in coordination of planning to clean the streets before lifting the overnight parking restrictions. With cars parked on the streets 24/7, it never allow for the accumulated curbside debris to be fully removed by street sweeping/cleaning equipment. When the driving rains come, all the, debris, stone, sand, and salt flow to the storm drains and clog them every year. We always have some street flooding as a result. Waltham sweep cleans their streets in March and it shows. Doesn’t that make sense?

    • ditto here. I just spend the weekend raking the muck off 3 storm drains on my corner which is at the bottom of a hill and putting it out for yard waste pickup. I understand and accept that keeping sidewalks clear of plant debris and snow is part of my “civic duty” but clearing gutters and storm drains? not so much.
