    Thank you to everyone who has purchased their vehicle sticker/s. The Police Department  has begun enforcement procedures that include $100 tickets for those operating a vehicle registered to Carol Stream without a vehicle sticker. 
    The cost of the vehicle sticker increases monthly and any resident found not in compliance will be responsible for the late registration cost as well as the $100 ticket. The current passenger vehicle sticker costs $75 and will cost $165 by April 2019 and those found without the sticker will be subjected to a $100 citation plus the full cost of the vehicle sticker. The stickers for other vehicle classes follow a similar pattern. 
    To purchase your vehicle sticker at the CURRENT rate and avoid a $100 citation you may visit our Police Department lobby in our temporary location 505 E North Ave. as we are always open.  You can also visit our Finance counter from 8 AM- 5 PM Monday-Friday excluding holidays.
