A fed-up citizen complains about contractors who block off larger swaths of valuable curb than they need for dumpsters:
We have a serious problem in this neighborhood where contractors are abusing occupancy permits and taking all available street parking. I get it when a dumpster is there for a week if demo work, but they are extending restricted space way beyond necessary and keeping restricted spaces for months as a way to keep their easy parking. Right now the dumpster spot at 3 Lawrence has two pick-ups in the 40' they've reserved for themselves. The parking lot at Columbus and Berkley has always had special $12 all day parking for contractors--the guys who worked here for years know that, these suburban dudes who don't even bring a little business to Billy's are scamming you and your taxpayers.
