City Sticker Ward Sales Off To Strong Start
Every year during Chicago’s annual city vehicle sticker season, each of the city’s 50 aldermen, host a one-day sale to give their constituents the convenience of purchasing their sticker close to home.
“Our City Vehicle Sticker sales in each ward office are always very popular,” says City Clerk Susana Mendoza. “I’m proud to partner with each Alderman to offer this convenient service, Like last year, this year I will be going to each ward sale to see our operations first-hand and hear ideas from Chicago drivers on how we can improve our sticker sales and services to constituents.”
Ward office sales kicked off successfully Wednesday with over 300 city stickers purchased at the 48th Ward office of Alderman Harry Osterman located at 5533 N. Broadway.
And according to City Clerk spokesperson Kristine Williams, these local ward sales are open to anyone–not just residents of that ward.
City vehicle stickers expired on June 30th, but drivers have until July 15th to purchase the 2012-2013 sticker without a $60 late fee or fear of a $200 ticket.
Anyone who owns a car registered in Chicago (or primarily houses or parks their car within the city limits even if it’s registered elsewhere) must purchase a city vehicle sticker for that vehicle.
This year, city stickers are $85 for most passenger vehicles and $135 for larger SUV type vehicles. Senior citizens are eligible to receive one sticker at $30, while annual Residential Zone Parking is an extra $25 per car. Daily Residential Parking Permits are $8 for 15 permits.
Here’s the full list of city sticker ward sales which run all the way through July 11th this year.
