The fruits of your shoveling labor will be rewarded for a few more hours.
Boston car owners who shoveled out their parking spaces after last week’s snowstorm get until 7 a.m. Friday to leave their space savers in place before they are forcibly removed.
The city allows people to leave a space saver – which can be anything from a flat-screen TV to a vacuum cleaner – in a spot they shoveled out for up to 48 hours after the snow emergency parking ban is lifted. The snow emergency was lifted at 6 p.m. Tuesday meaning that the space savers would usually have to be removed by 6 p.m. Thursday.
The reason for the extra 13 hours? A city spokesman said that trash crews would pick up the savers on their normal route and would likely not make a special nighttime trip out to the neighborhoods to collect the space savers.
So enjoy that reserved space a little longer, car owners. It will not last long.
