I think the city parks are really pleasant for kids to play , pick-nic or just sitting on the grass... DOG'S have no business there. I do not want to have my grand kids or any family member dealing w...ith dog poop and urine residues or unruly dogs. There is a dog park available for them ..... if dogs and other animals are allowed in...... count me out. See More

Bus system is a joke, the only thing that is constant is being late. Last bus at 6 pm and no service on Sundays with limited service on Saturday. There are smaller towns in Alaska with better bus systems.

Can somebody with a clue tell me why the lights on Montana Ave are RED when there is a train going through town? Does that make any sense to anybody at all? Think of the time and fuel that would be sa...ved, not to mention the pollution that could be avoided if the lights were set to not cycle when one direction is impassible. If countless smaller cities across the country can do it then you should be able to. Then we can start a conversation about having ALL the city's stoplights synchronized so the next light on the street doesn't turn red immediately after the one you were waiting for turns green...

The City is going to be full of retired people and no work force. I guess Amarillo is worse, but I still can't say it's "fair". It's a City that "trips over dollars to pick up pennies." Backwards.

I love how I'm ran off the
Road and cut in front of to get a simple bus stop in front of golden coral on the snow removal. Then yelled at how much of a tough guy I am

Mayor Tom Hanel is obviously against sexual preference or orientation and so are so many people in Montana. It just makes me sick to be known as a Montanan. One would think that in this day and age pe...ople would be more understanding and want to move forward not regress back to the days of old. We need a new Mayor for this city that will bring all into the 21 century!!!!! See More

So Police 'safety' checkpoints. This sort of thing is business as usual in Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea. Is there any way it can be construed to be ok in the USA? This is ill...egal, immoral, outrageous, and thoroughly disgusting. Ihre papiere bitte! See More

The goal of many pet owners will be realized when leashed and licensed dogs and cats will be allowed in most areas of Billings’ city parks starting Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Pet owners will be required to have necessary clean-up equipment in their possession and to remove any fecal matter if they choose to use park facilities with their animals.


Pets still will be banned in the following specific park areas, due to health and safety concerns:

• Playgrounds with play equipment;
• Spray grounds or swimming pools;
• Athletic fields;
• Tennis courts;
• Basketball courts;
• Community gardens or formal garden areas;
• City-owned golf courses;
• All park buildings; and
• Organized events including outdoor concerts, markets, shows, programs, exhibits, assemblies, festivals, carnivals and fairs.

Leashed and licensed dogs and cats will be allowed only on roads in City-owned cemeteries. Organized dog events may be held with Park, Recreation and Public Lands permits in designated areas of City parks at specific times.

High Sierra Dog Park is the only City park where dogs are allowed off- leash.

Any owner convicted of having a dangerous or potentially dangerous animal will not be allowed to bring that animal into a City park.

Owners whose pets are not wearing current licenses when in parks will be subject to a Municipal Code civil violation.

The City Council approved pets in parks amendments to the City’s animal control ordinance on August 8, 2016, but delayed implementation of the amendments until the first day of the month following a report that the City had 10,000 dogs and cats licensed. Council members were told during a pre-budget and work plan meeting on Saturday, Jan. 21, that more than 10,000 licenses had been issued.

Pet owners seeking more information on licensing requirements can visit the City’s web site at For the location of parks where they may take their pets, pet owners should visit

Did you know? All dogs and cats residing in the City limits are required to be vaccinated and licensed.

The Billings City Council has agreed to pass an ordinance allowing dogs and cats in City parks, on-leash, if the community assists by raising the number of licensed animals to 10,000 (retroactive from January 2016).

To license your dog or cat, bring a current rabies vaccination certificate to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter (1735 Monad Road) or to most area veterin...ary clinics. You will be required to complete a short form and pay the following licensing fee:

Altered (Spayed/Neutered):
1 Year license fee: $7.50
3 Year license fee: $15.00 -- a bargain!

1 Year license fee: $30.00
3 Year license fee: $80.00-- a bargain!

For more information, please visit the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter at 1735 Monad Road, the City’s website at, or call 406-657-8226.

Get your pet vaccinated and licensed – it’s the right thing to do!

We Want to Hear From You!

The City of Billings is asking all city residents to participate in The National Citizen Survey (NCS)™. The survey responses help officials to: gauge citizen perceptions of living in Billings, evaluate the quality of city services, assess community priorities and make comparisons with peer cities. The City conducted similar surveys in 2009 and 2012, which allows for a comparison of resident perspectives and opinions over the years.

Surveys have bee...n mailed to 1,400 randomly selected households. The results will be included in a final report that city officials will use to guide future strategic and financial planning and budgeting decisions. In addition to the mailed survey, the City has established a web survey that all residents can complete. From July 1 to July 15, the survey will be available online at:

The NCS is conducted by the National Research Center, Inc. (NRC), of Boulder, CO. The survey has been conducted in hundreds of local governments, ranging in size from small to large. Scientific sampling and weighting of the responses in each city ensure accurate and reliable results. Because each jurisdiction's survey is developed using a standard template, and many jurisdictions can be surveyed at one time, The NCS™ is a very efficient way to measure citizen opinion. The NRC guarantees anonymity and will never disclose individual responses to the City of Billings.

For more information about the City of Billings survey, please visit the City’s website at You may also contact Assistant City Administrator Bruce McCandless at or (406) 657-8222.
