Missoula City Codes state a vehicle is in violation if it has not moved for more than 5 consecutive days, being parked for the purpose of sale, repair or storage.
To report an abandoned vehicle:
If the vehicle is in the city limits and not on private property, you may submit the information online, or contact the abandoned vehicle specialist with the following information:
- Make of vehicle
- Model of vehicle
- Vehicle color
- Exact location of vehicle (street and number, or street and nearest cross street)
- License plate number
- Length of time the vehicle has been there (be as exact as possible)
- Your name and contact number (in case we have questions, we will keep this confidential)
If the vehicle is on private property we require a notarized signature by a person having control over the property. You may print out a private property abandoned vehicle (PDF) form.
