2013-2014 Vehicle Stickers
2013-2014 Village of Mount Prospect vehicle stickers went on sale February 1. The new vehicle sticker must be displayed by May 1. Passenger vehicle stickers are $36,motorcycle and motorbike stickers are $24, and trucks with B plates are $54. There is an additional price schedule for trucks based on their individual weights. There is no increase in fees this year.
If you bought one or more stickers last year, you should have received a renewal application in early February. If you received a renewal application, you’ll be able to conveniently purchase your new stickers by mail. If you did not receive an application, please pick one up at Village Hall. If you had a vehicle sticker in 2012 and did not receive a renewal application in the mail, this does not absolve you of the responsibility for buying a new sticker. If the vehicle(s) you have now is/are not the same as the one you had when last year’s sticker was purchased, the application form will contain information about the former vehicle. In that case, just cross out those details and print the current information on the application.
To purchase your new sticker(s) in person instead of by mail or on-line, you can do so at the Village Hall during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. For your convenience, the Village Hall will be open on Saturdays in April from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Beginning May 1, escalating late purchase penalties will be added to the cost of your sticker. If you receive a Police Department citation for not having an up-to-date sticker, you may have to (1) pay a fine, (2) pay the basic cost of the new sticker, AND (3) pay the late purchase penalty. You can avoid all that by buying your sticker on time.
|Vehicle stickers may be purchased online. There is a vehicle ID referenced on the pre-printed application you may have received in the mail that will get you started in the renewal process. You may still be able to purchase your sticker on-line without a pre-printed application. Please visit the website for more information.
The penalty will not initially apply to new Village residents or to residents who purchase replacement vehicles on or after May 1. In either case, you’ll have 30 days in which to purchase your sticker. During the grace period, proof of purchase or move-in date will be required to assure that a surcharge penalty is not imposed. If you change vehicles during the year after having bought a current sticker, a replacement sticker may be obtained within 30 days (with original receipt) in order to qualify for the $5 transfer fee. If you are purchasing new license plates, you should purchase the sticker within the 30-day limit and write “applied for” in the space on the application for license plate information. When you receive the plates, call the Finance Department and provide the plate numbers. Senior citizen rates are available for residents 65 and over (with proof of age). However, just one reduced rate ($12) sticker per household is allowed and the vehicle must be owned and operated by the senior for a non-commercial purpose. Seniors who become eligible to purchase a vehicle sticker at the reduced rate must come in to Village Hall to obtain that sticker. Certain individuals with disabilities may be eligible to receive a sticker at no charge. Please contact the Finance Department for more information.
