Permanent street sweeping signs gone in Noble Square

I noticed that this week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, that there were paper signs up announcing street sweeping dates in place of the permanent signs that were up before with set dates. The signs were put up on Monday, which means only a days notice to move cars before they are ticketed or towed. This seems like a way to make more money for the city by catching people off guard and ticketing.
