DOWNTOWN — The dibs deadline is set: get your chairs, sawhorses and other "obstructions" out of the street before Friday or city crews will start collecting them.

Streets and Sanitation Commissioner Charles Williams laid down the law Wednesday.

"As is the case with every winter season, once snow starts to melt, Streets and Sanitation crews begin to remove material from the public way," he said in a statement. "I want to ask residents to be good neighbors and remove material from the public way to ensure it is not moved by our crews."

Streets and sanitation issued a statement Wednesday saying crews would begin picking up items left in the street "as early as Friday." It also said residents can report street obstructions by calling 311.
