"48" Hour Violations
The City of Bozeman requires that all vehicles parked on city streets move every 48 hours (Section 36.04.260 municipal code). This is necessary to be sure that the public streets are being used for appropriate parking, not the long term storage of vehicles, campers, etc. The Parking Services Division enforces this regulation with a $30 citation. After the issuance of two (2) consecutive citations, a vehicle will be turned over to the Code Enforcement Division to be towed off the street. For more information on "48 hour" violations contact Ed Meece, Parking Program Manager.

The Parking Commission was then revised with Resolution No. 1839 in 1976, and Resolution No. 3803 in 2005.
