Overweight Parking

The Monroe Municipal Code, Section 10.24.040, generally prohibits the operation of vehicles weighing more than 12,500 pounds from operating on streets not designated as truck routes. It provides for the issuance of permits for drivers or owners of trucks to obtain a permit to park their truck on their property or on the street in front of their property.

The character of Monroe has changed substantially since this permitting was established in 1978. The Monroe City Council will be reviewing the permit process and determine if any changes are needed. These changes could include, among other options, limiting the number of permits issued or eliminating the permit program entirely.
