Village Vehicle Sticker - UPDATE
UPDATE - February 13, 2019
In response to concerns raised by some residents with regard to the design of the 2019-20 vehicle sticker, the Village of Mount Prospect has decided to redesign the sticker. The original vehicle sticker was designed to commemorate and honor the police department and their community outreach initiative through a permanent patrol beat structure. Part of the design included an image of a thin blue lined flag, which was intended to honor the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their communities. Some in the community have found the thin blue lined flag to be racially divisive. The decision to produce a newly designed vehicle sticker addresses those concerns and acknowledges the fact that some residents stated they would feel uncomfortable placing the sticker on their vehicle. The redesigned sticker celebrates the Police Department’s community outreach and inclusion efforts. This sticker [image, right] is currently in production and should be available for distribution by March 1.
Both Options Available
Due to feedback received from residents, the Village has decided to make both designs available to residents. Residents who receive vehicle stickers with a design that is not their preference may return them to the Finance Department of Village Hall and request an exchange. This applies to those who received the first design, as well as those who will receive the new design.
Please note: Stickers purchased online or via return mail will receive the redesigned sticker, due to logistical difficulties in offering two designs through a third-party fulfillment company.
Exchange options for those with a 2019-2020 vehicle sticker are as follows:
- Returning the stickers in person at the Finance Department anytime after March 1.
- Returning the stickers via mail to Village Hall Finance Department, 50 S. Emerson Street, with a note requesting the preferred image.
- Returning the stickers via the 24-hour payment boxes (located outside the front door of Village Hall and in the parking deck, next to the library book return) with a note requesting the preferred image.
The 2019-20 vehicle sticker must be displayed by May 1. Information regarding vehicle sticker purchase is available here.
A guiding principle for the Village of Mount Prospect is to respectfully engage all stakeholders in the exchange of thoughts, ideas and opinions. The Village strives to honor our heritage, respect our diversity, stimulate connectivity and foster a sense of community optimism.
