Vehicle sticker sales are now underway. Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a vehicle is required to purchase and display a vehicle sticker annually by July 15. Anyone who misses the deadline must purchase a sticker and pay a $20 late fee. Failure to display a valid Village sticker by the deadline also may result in a $50 ticket.
Residents whose vehicles already are registered with the Village can save 10 percent by renewing online at www.oak-park.us, rather than via mail or in person at Village Hall. Renewal forms mailed 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 e-mail address or telephone number included in the previous year’s application.
Online payments require an e-mail address and a credit or debit card. The sticker is delivered via U.S. Mail, typically within a few days of purchase.
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 business. Computers also are available at public library branches.
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. A current vehicle sticker is needed to purchase a parking permit.
In-person sticker purchases and renewals are offered in the Parking Service Center at Village Hall from 8:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. Mondays, and 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday – Friday. The Center also will be open for vehicle sticker purchases and renewals from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m., Sat., July 6. Village Hall will be closed on Thurs., 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 15, but will automatically assess the late fee after the midnight deadline. Vehicle sticker rates vary by type of vehicle.
