READING, Pa. -

People saving snow-cleared parking spaces in Reading have been given a one-day reprieve.

A collection of chairs, buckets and other items that are being used to save the spots on public streets has been postponed until Friday because of logistical issues, officials said.

Mayor Vaughn Spencer's administration announced in a statement Wednesday that public works crews and police officers would begin a citywide collection Thursday.
