Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a motor vehicle is required to purchase and display a vehicle sticker annually before July 15. Sticker prices increase $20 after the deadline.
Failure to display a valid Village sticker by the deadline also may result in a $75 ticket.
A current vehicle sticker is required to purchase a parking permit. Residents whose vehicles already are registered with the Village can save time by renewing online at www.oak-park.us/onlineservices rather than via mail or in person at Village Hall.
Renewal notices mailed or emailed to current sticker holders include a unique web identification number that allows a vehicle owner to correct or update most data online, including address and telephone number, and add vehicle information. 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.
Online payments require an email address and a credit or debit card. The sticker is delivered via U.S. Mail, typically within a few days of purchase.
The online option is for renewals only. First-time vehicle sticker purchasers must come to Village Hall, 123 Madison St. A lease, utility bill or other government-issued proof of residency is required. In-person sticker purchases and renewals are offered 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, except holidays.
Village Hall also will be open for vehicle sticker purchases and renewals from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Sat., July 1. 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 charge the higher fee at the midnight. Vehicle sticker rates vary by type of vehicle.
More information, including rates for various types of vehicles, senior citizens and active-duty military personnel is posted at www.oak-park.us/parking. Information also is available by calling 708.358.7275 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
