Mayor’s Office response to letter re: street cleaning tickets

sent via email:

Thank you for contacting the Office of Mayor London Breed regarding street cleaning. In order to honor the stay home order, SFMTA will not ticket for street sweeping through the end of the month.

Parking meter enforcement will continue in order to ensure spaces are available for people who are driving and parking for critical trips. It is crucial that we still clean our streets to prevent trash buildup and local flooding. Please still move your car for street cleaning if you can. Parking enforcement will be temporarily suspended for the following: 72-hour parking limit and towing, Residential Permit Parking (RPP) permits, Commuter shuttles, Peak-hour tow away zones. For the most updated information, please consult the SFMTA website here.

I assure you that the City is taking the necessary precautions to keep our residents safe. Please reach out if you have any additional questions.

Kind regards,

Mandy Ngu

“Everyone will have to make sacrifices, but a place to live shouldn’t be one of them,” governor says.

[Update: Late Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order
that allows cities to suspend evictions for renters and homeowners,
citing the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak and the related economic
fallout.

“ Over the next few weeks, everyone will have to make sacrifices  – but a place to live shouldn’t be one of them,” Newsom said in a statement, adding “I strongly encourage cities and counties take up this authority to protect Californians.”

State government cannot suspend evictions itself, so individual municipalities will have to implement moratoriums themselves. Minutes after the order, Supervisor Matt Haney and Supervisor Dean Preston said that the Board of Supervisors will quickly take up an SF plan… (more)
