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.”
