Plan Increases Sticker Fee For 355,000 Vehicle Owners
Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza doesn’t want to see an increase in the fees for Chicago city vehicle stickers.
She even campaigned against raising city sticker costs.
So it wasn’t a surprise when Mendoza, minutes after Mayor Rahm Emanuel gave his budget speech to the Chicago City Council calling for, among other things, an increase in city sticker fees for larger vehicles or SUVs and trucks, she voiced strong opposition to the measure
“I am adamantly opposed to raising any city vehicle sticker fees and this is the first I have heard of any such increase,” said Clerk Mendoza, who seemed blindsided by Mayor Emanuel’s proposal. “The large passenger sticker fee was last increased in 2007 by $30. The proposed $15 sticker price increase would amount to a 12.5% price hike in only 5 years, which is unacceptable at a time when people’s pocketbooks are stretched to the maximum already.”
Chicago firefighters and policemen who will grace the front of next year’s Chicago city sticker, when the winner of the 2012-2013 City Sticker Design Contest is announced.
The competition, sponsored by the City Clerk’s office every year, is now accepting design submissions from Chicago high school students, which if selected will make it onto the windshield of 1.3 million motor vehicles registered in the city. This year’s theme is “Chicago’s Heroes”, to honor this city’s first responders.
“I encourage all Chicago high school students to create a sticker that would honor our brave men and women who protect our communities every day,” said Clerk Mendoza. “Our annual vehicle sticker contest is a great way to participate in our city’s government and showcase the immense artistic talent our students have. Last year’s contest drew nearly 400 entries from 50 schools and I hope to increase those numbers this year!”

“She’s going to be in the hallway as much as possible,” explains Kristine Williams, spokesperson for the City Clerk’s office. “(She’s) also going to all 50 ward sales. She wants to see all aspects of sticker sales to see how the office can continue to improve.”
