When to Buy a Sticker

Sticker Renewals

If you have previously purchased a sticker from the Village, you must purchase a renewal each year. The date for stickers to be purchased and displayed this year is September 1. Stickers are available June 1 for purchase online, by mail, or via one of the Village's drop-boxes only. Purchases can also be made at the Village Hall front counter starting June 8 during regular business hours. Members of the public are required to wear face coverings, maintain 6 feet of physical distance, and follow posted signage.

Current residents who have purchased Village vehicle stickers and are in our database automatically receive renewal applications in the mail towards the end of May of each calendar year.

New Residents and Businesses

Residents and businesses who are moving into the community have a 45 day grace period in which to purchase stickers for their vehicles. Stickers can be purchased at Village Hall.

Where to Place the Sticker

The Village vehicle sticker must be affixed to the lower left windshield of the vehicle. When purchasing the renewal sticker, please remove the old sticker and place the new one in its place.

Can I Transfer a Sticker?

Yes. If you purchase a new vehicle and want to transfer your sticker, you can at no cost. Simply contact the Finance Department at 847-272-5050 to notify the Village.
