Village Eliminates Residential Vehicle Stickers

Post Date:03/25/2018 7:00 PM

Elk Grove Village has eliminated residential vehicle stickers.

Vehicle sticker revenue has long been a source of funding for road maintenance and resurfacing projects.  The Village’s exceptional economic success for the past few years has created an opportunity to replace lost revenue from residential vehicle stickers by using funds from the recent budget surplus. 

Aside from the cost, it can be a hassle for residents to purchase vehicle stickers each year, and the Mayor and Board are excited to have the opportunity to eliminate this annual fee for residents. 

Below are answers to a few questions you may have about this change:

How will the Village replace revenue from residential vehicle stickers?

Vehicle sticker revenue has long been an important source of funding for road maintenance and resurfacing projects.  The Village has experienced exceptional economic success for the past few years and this sustained success has created an opportunity to replace lost revenue from residential vehicle stickers by using funds from the recent budget surplus. Dedicated funding for road projects will continue to come from vehicle stickers for businesses.

Why is the Village still requiring vehicle stickers for businesses?

In addition to the employees that use our roads on a daily basis, businesses are the source of heavy truck traffic which causes significantly more wear and tear on roads than passenger vehicles.  Revenue from vehicle stickers for businesses will continue to be used to maintain the high quality infrastructure which is the lifeblood of our Business Park.

Does the Police Department use vehicle stickers to help identify cars from out of town?

Vehicle stickers were used in the past as a quick way to distinguish local vehicles, however the Police Department is now equipped with license plate scanners, which accomplish a similar purpose.

Can residents remove the current vehicle sticker from their cars?

Yes, residents are welcome to remove the current vehicle sticker from their cars at any time.
