VIP Parking - private use of public space?

Several cars, including a TLC licensed Chevy Suburban, were parked with the assistance of Sam Schwartz traffic managers in the No Standing zone west of the MPT area.  This area is filled during the day with contstruction workers' cars. Is this a permit situation with the DOT?  An arrangement with the city?
