Two popular conveniences will be available this Saturday, June 23rd, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at my 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis):
I am pleased to report the Chicago City Clerk’s office once again will be selling City vehicle stickers at the 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview, this Saturday (June 23rd), from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.There is no additional fee for this convenience.
The prices for the City vehicle stickers are as follows:
- Small passenger vehicles (under 4,500 lbs): $85.00
- Larger passenger vehicles (4,500 lbs or more): $135.00
- Senior Citizens (for small and larger vehicles): $30.00
- Truck (16,000 lbs or less): $200.00
- Motorcycle: $45.00
A vehicle sticker in a residential permit parking zone will cost an additional $25.
Please bring your driver’s license or renewal form and know your vehicle license plate number. The Clerk’s Office prefers payment by check or money order, but will accept cash or credit card payments. If you’re a senior citizen, make sure you have an ID to receive the senior discount.
If you participated in the Aldermanic Will Call Program, Saturday is the first day you can pick up your sticker at the Ward Office.
Enforcement will begin on July 16th and failure to purchase and display the new vehicle city sticker by July 16th could result in a $120 ticket and a purchasing late fee.
You may also purchase your city sticker at one of seven City Clerk and City Department of Revenue locations or at more than 400 “community vendors,” including currency exchanges, Dominick’s grocery stores, and select banks. Please note that community vendors can charge up to a $5.50 convenience fee.

Keep in mind that even if your vehicle is registered in the suburbs or out-of-state, you may need to purchase a city vehicle sticker. By ordinance, vehicles that are “principally garaged” in the city more than 30 days must have a city vehicle sticker
The City will begin enforcing the vehicle sticker requirement on July 16th and failure to purchase and display the new vehicle city sticker by that date could result in a $200 ticket and a $60 late fee. So avoid those tickets and fees and get your sticker!
During the City Vehicle sticker sale, a mobile shredding truck sponsored by Midway Document Destruction’s Mobile Shredding Truck will be parked in the lot outside my office, providing free paper shredding and recycling to residents of the 49th Ward.
Stop by my office at 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis) on Saturday, June 23rd, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and get rid of any old or unwanted papers. Because the documents are shredded, you won’t have to worry about anyone being able to read your private information. Just bring your old documents to the truck, where they will be shredded on the spot in front of you and then taken away to be recycled.
Bring any documents you no longer need or want but that might contain personal or private information. Examples include:
- Bank statements
- Outdated medical records
- Pay stubs
- Old bills and receipts
- Credit card offers
- Tax returns older than seven years
One word of caution: make sure you keep your newly purchased city vehicle sticker at a safe distance from the shredder!
