DENVER (CBS4) – The city of Denver will start street sweeping on April 1, but they’re asking for your help moving your car, if possible. Earlier this month, the city suspended handing out tickets for expired parking.
The move came after Denver, and subsequently the state, announced a stay at home order.
The city will not enforce street sweeping restrictions for the next 30 days.
