City Councilman Corey O’Connor has requested the City to extend the courtesy of a “no ticketing” policy for street cleaning during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as well as Sukkot and Simchat Torah.
O’Connor has provided the appropriate departments with the dates of each holiday and explained, as well, that each holiday begins and ends at sundown. This year, Shabbat falls immediately following Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah, and the “no-ticketing” policy will be in place. Cars can still be cited or towed if blocking the flow of traffic, parking too close to corners, blocking driveways, fire hydrants, loading zones, dumpster area or pedestrian walkways.
“I want to recognize and thank the Directors of the Parking Authority, Public Works and the Police Bureau for their understanding and cooperation,” said O’Connor. “It is important that everyone is able to observe the laws and customs of their religious holidays.”
The Councilman wishes the Jewish community a happy, healthy, and sweet New Year.
