Overweight ParkinG Permit

The Monroe Municipal Code, Section 10.24.040, generally prohibits the operation of vehicles weighing more than 15,000 pounds from driving on streets not designated as truck routes. However, the code does provide 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.  Motor vehicles with a valid Overweight Parking Permit that travel to and from any permitted parking site shall not be more than a minimum distance necessary from approved truck routes.

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.
