Ask a Dispatcher
Q. Many weeks ago there was a question posted here about a small grey truck w/ green shell that was left on 7th St at the top of Seward St. & had not been moved for months. Dispatchers's response said someone was on it. The truck is still there & has no visible tag or ticket on it. What gives? How many months can a vehicle sit on a city street before it is considered abandoned?
Dear Juneau Resident,
This request will go back to the community service officers. They mark on their notes where the valve stems are on the tires and it is illegal to use the streets to store a vehicle, more than 72 hours. However, it doesn't take much to move a vehicle a little and then the issue becomes more complicated. JPD will impound the vehicle if we legally can.
