As camping and RV season quickly approaches, the Butte-Silver Bow Parking Department would like to remind citizens about RV and trailer Parking Ordinances inside the Butte city limits.  Ordinance #204 allows you to park your RV or trailer on the street for a maximum of two days (in a seven-day period) for loading and unloading.  Rvs and trailers parked longer than two days will be ticketed.  Fines for a violation are $50.00 for a first offense and $100.00 for each offense thereafter.  Additionally, the Parking Department is asking RV and trailer owners to refrain from parking and storing in places that block the line of sight of other drivers, blocking the line of site is a safety hazard to citizens on foot, especially children as well as other vehicles.
 
For questions, please contact the Butte-Silver Bow Parking Department at

Very High to Extreme Fire Danger Persists in Southwest Montana
 
With these dry conditions across much of the area, the potential for accidentally starting a wildfire is also very high.  Here are a few fire prevention tips to keep in mind as you set out to enjoy your weekend.
 
Build campfires in an existing ring or in an area of vegetation.  Stay with your fire, never leaving it unattended.  Drown with water and stir until it is "dead out" and cold to the touch.
 
Avoid driving or parking on dry grass.  Exhaust systems and catalytic converters easily start fires.  Well-maintained vehicle tires reduce the risk of blowouts, and exposed rims can start fires.  Make sure safety chains do not drag and cause sparks.
 
Make sure all mechanical outdoor equipment (tractors, chainsaws, off-road vehicles, etc.) are equipped with properly-working mufflers, spark arrestors and bearings.  If possible, avoid working during the heat of the day when fires start easier.
 
If you accidentally star a fire, give it one try to put it out.  Try one bucket of water, one fire extinguisher, or one good rinse with a garden hose.  Then call 911.
 
If you see a fire, report it immediately.  Don't assume someone else has.
 
There are currently 15 wildfires burning in Montana.  Let's all do our part to help our firefighters by preventing the next one.

    The Times ran a story on the demands of rock stars when on tour. Ozzy Osbourne insists on an eye, ear, nose and throat doctor at each venue. The Beach Boys require a licensed masseur, Meat Loaf a mask and one small tank of oxygen. David Bowie requests that the dressing room temperature is between 14c and 18c and Paul McCartney must have a large arrangement of white Casablanca lilies in his dressing room. Mick Jagger must have an onstage autocue with the lyrics to all the songs, it would also tell him the name of the city in which they were performing.
