In certain sections of the city, street sweeping is scheduled on the third Saturday of every month. Turns out, March 22 was actually the fourth Saturday of the month and residents were ticketed.

In a statement issued Monday–Mayor Kim Bracey said the ticketing was done in error and have been voided.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and have put measures in place to make sure this does not happen again,” said Mayor Bracey.
