Community Service Unit

Marysville's Community Service Unit is a specialty unit made up of a reserve commissioned police officer who enforces all state and Marysville Municipal Code laws related to animals, junk vehicles and parking. Call 911 to report an animal, parking or junk vehicle complaint.

Junk/abandoned vehicles

Call 911 to report an abandoned vehicle on public right of way OR a junk vehicle on your private property. For junk vehicles, you'll need a junk vehicle form, which you can get by calling the Department of Licensing at 360-902-3770 or downloading and completing a Junk Vehicle Affidavit.

To qualify as a junk vehicle, the vehicle must meet three of the following conditions:
  • Must be at least three years old
  • Must be extensively damaged
  • Must be apparently inoperable
  • Must have a fair market value equal only to the approximate value of the scrap of the vehicle
