Street Sweeping Citations
UPDATE: THE ORANGE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT HAS SUSPENDED STREET SWEEPING PARKING ENFORCEMENT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Rossmoor Community Services District pays R.F. Dickson to perform street sweeping services on the FIRST and THIRD Monday of every month between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Parking is prohibited on local streets during street sweeping hours as authorized by California Vehicle Code Section 22507.6. When a street sweeping day (1st or 3rd Monday) falls on a holiday, the streets are swept on the following Monday. The District posts street sweeping reminder banners on the signature wall.
Please Be Advised...
Cars That Remain Parked on the Street, Prevent the Street Sweeper From Doing its Job and Will Be Cited!
ALL CITATION RELATED COMPLAINTS MUST BE DIRECTED TO THE ORANGE COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT
Orange County Sheriff Department’s non emergency number 714.527.9100. Follow the directions found on the back of the citation. RCSD will not intervene on citation-related matters.
RCSD DOES NOT HAVE JURISDICTION OVER STREET SWEEPING CITATIONS. Exempt from this Resolution are clearly identifiable (business logo/insignia) commercial service vehicles when actively employed in performing that service and dumpsters which are permitted to be temporarily placed on local streets.
Those who violate the no parking rule make it impossible for the street sweeper to do its job as effectively as possible and prevent the District and its residents from obtaining the full benefit of this service.
The County Sheriff is not always available to enforce parking issues as they are attending to more urgent matters. It’s up to YOU to make them aware of the problem. Keep track of dates and times that your street has been neglected because someone refused to move their vehicle.
