The streets are currently being cleaned by the City of Richmond and there’s been reports that cars are being towed left and right. The residential street sweeping was supposed to start on 7/29 but it’s happening as we type this post.
Here is the street map for Church Hill: http://www.richmondgov.com/PublicWorks/documents/mapRoute2.pdf
If you have been towed, contact:
642 W. Southside Plaza
Richmond, VA 23224
From a personal experience, I was so upset last year when my car got towed that I forgot my wallet when I got to Siebert’s. Be sure to bring your driver’s license with you!
Parking/Towing for Disabled Vehicles
Effective immediately DPW Street Cleaning and Vacuum Leaf Program services do not accept requests to not tow disabled cars.
If your vehicle is disabled and parked on the street, you need to contact the Richmond Police Department at(804)646-1343. Please keep in mind disabled vehicles should not be parked on City of Richmond streets during street cleaning or vacuum leaf collection. Once signage is posted, all vehicles, even those that are disabled, must be moved before street cleaning so as to not receive a parking ticket and towing fees.
The Richmond Police Department issues parking violations and tows cars. DPW Street Cleaning posts the no parking signs at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled service. The Police will not tow if the signs are not in compliance. The Department of Public Works Street Cleaning Division cannot authorize parking ticket refunds or towing fee refunds.
