My neighbor leaves his trash cans out all the time. Is this allowed?
Trash, green-waste, and recyclables are collected on Wednesdays, City-wide. The containers may be put out any time on Tuesdays, and must be off the public right-of-way by 5:00 AM, Thursday. The containers may be out if someone is actively using it while gardening or performing other property maintenance, but are to be put away when they stop working.
Are traffic signals in the City synchronized?
Many of them are. The City has a Traffic Management System where timing of green and red lights at major intersections can be modified and coordinated for better travel times through the City. Various corridors are synchronized at certain times a day to handle commuter traffic, school traffic, and special event traffic. The City has a number of cameras installed at key intersections to provide real-time information for these efforts.
