ALDERMAN MICHELLE HARRIS HOLDS CITY VEHICLE STICKER SALE

By Christopher Shuttlesworth

Alderman Michelle Harris of the 8th Ward, hosted an Annual City Sticker Sale for local residents on May 18, 2017 at the 8th Ward Service Office, located at 8539 S. Cottage Grove Avenue. Harris said the purpose of hosting the vehicle sticker sale at her office was so that residents would have a convenient, safe and hassle free place to come and register and renew their stickers.

“In the past people have had to go downtown or go to some place that was not

convenient,” a spokesperson at Alderman Michelle Harris’ office said. “The alderman has been doing this for several years as a convenience to her constituents so they don’t have to drive downtown. They can come to an office that they know and do it quickly and in comfort.”

Alderman Harris office said it is also easier for seniors who live in the Ward to register at the office because they come there a lot and it takes between six to seven

minutes to get the Chicago City Vehicle Sticker renewed.

According to the Chicago City Clerk’s Office, citizens must purchase a Chicago City

Vehicle Sticker in-person and must bring their Chicago City Vehicle Sticker Courtesy Reminder or their State Vehicle Registration ID Card, which includes their VIN (Vehicle

Identification Number) and license plate information.

A spokesperson for the alderman said that the city vehicle sticker sales took place

all around the city and the City Clerk’s Office decided on which times it was best to conduct the sales in various offices. The cost of the vehicle stickers varied based on

an individual vehicle type, but most of the stickers’ prices ranged from $45.89 cents for motorcycles, $86.69-$137.69 for passenger vehicles and $458.95 for large trucks.

The Chicago City Clerk’s Office said all Chicago residents driving or parking a vehicle for which they are responsible in the City of Chicago are subject to the Chicago Wheel Tax and must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker. This includes Chicago residents that maintain their registration outside of the City of Chicago, but use the vehicle in the City.”

The City Clerk’s Office also noted that the grace period for $60 late fees towards

the city vehicle sticker is 30 days. So, any type of car, truck or motor vehicle with an

expired city vehicle sticker will be given a ticket on the first day after their city sticker

has expired.
