Oak Park vehicle sticker deadline approaching

The following comes from the Village of Oak Park:

Village vehicle stickers go on sale as renewal notices are mailed to the owners of the nearly 28,000 vehicles registered to Oak Park residents.

Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a vehicle is required to purchase and display a Village sticker annually before July 15. Anyone who misses the deadline must pay a $20 late fee in addition to the cost of the sticker. Failure to display a valid Village sticker also could result in a $50 ticket.

Residents whose vehicles already are registered with the Village can save 10 percent by renewing online, rather than via mail or in person at Village Hall, 123 Madison St.

First-time vehicle sticker purchasers – and residents who have turned 65 since they last renewed – must come to Village Hall and provide proof of residency, such as a lease, utility bill or other government-issued item. A driver’s license and vehicle information also is required. A current vehicle sticker is needed to purchase a parking permit.

Renewal forms mailed to current sticker holders include a unique web identification number that allows a vehicle owner to correct or update most data, including address and telephone number, and vehicle information. Online renewals require a credit card and an email address for confirmation. The sticker is delivered via U.S. Mail, typically within a few days of purchase.

Anyone who loses the renewal notice can look up their web ID number using the email address or telephone number included in the previous year’s application.

Residents who would like to renew online, but don’t have access to a computer can come to Village Hall where a computer is available to the public for official Village business. Computers also are available at branches of the Oak Park Public Library.

In-person sticker purchases and renewals are offered in the Parking Services Center at Village Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays, and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. The Center also will be open for vehicle sticker purchases and renewals from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Sat., July 12. Village Hall will be closed on Mon., May 26 and Fri., July 4.

Individuals renewing in person are urged to bring their renewal notice to speed up processing.

The online renewal system will continue to be available through July 14, but will automatically begin assessing the late fee at midnight.

Vehicle sticker rates vary by type of vehicle. The fee for a passenger car is $50, or $45 for online renewals. Persons 65 years old and older, or who have a state-issued handicapped license plate or placard, receive a discount.

More information on vehicle stikers, including rates for various types of vehicles, is posted on this website.
