  • Keep your yard neat, don’t leave your couch on the curb, and know City Ordinances for yard maintenance and snow removal.
  • Pick up after your pet, get it registered with the City of Bozeman, and keep it on a leash or in a fenced yard.
  • Be courteous and avoid citations when parking by not blocking driveways, sidewalks, hydrants, or mailboxes.
