BUTTE – The Butte-Silver Bow Parking Commission would like to remind our community about the following parking ordinances:
1) Ordinance #10.52.60 – Parking against traffic (wrong side of the street). You must park facing the same direction as the flow of traffic. Fine - $25.00
2) Ordinance #10.52.010 – Parking is prohibited on any sidewalk. Parking on the sidewalk restricts pedestrian right of way. Fine - $25.00
3) Ordinance #204 – Allows for an RV of trailer to be parked on the street for a maximum of 2 days (in any 7 day period) for loading and unloading. Parking RVs or trailers longer than 2 days will result in a ticket. Fine - $50.00 for a first offense and $100.00 for each offense thereafter.
The purpose of these ordinances are to ensure the safety of our neighborhoods, particularly our children who may be playing outside in the area. Maintaining clear lines of sight on our roadways will keep our pedestrians and drivers safe.
