CITY DELAYS ENFORCEMENT OF STICKER, PARKING-PERMIT REQUIREMENTS FOR 2 WEEKS
Enforcement of city sticker and residential permit parking requirements won’t kick in until Aug. 1 — a two-week extension meant to allow motorists extra time to come into compliance.
The extension also comes as the city tries to keep up with a surge in city sticker and parking permit demand, Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office said Tuesday.
City stickers can be purchased online or by visiting any of the office of the city clerk locations, Department of Finance payment centers or at neighborhood currency exchanges.
Additionally, expired vehicle registration enforcement will begin in November to align with the Illinois secretary of state vehicle registration extension date.
The issuance of compliance tickets has been suspended since March 18, when the city began sheltering in place.
Debt collection, payment plan defaults and nonsafety vehicle impoundments are also resuming as the city opens back up.
During the early stages of the reopening plan, the city’s Department of Finance began notifying motorists about their outstanding debt and offering to restructure or restart their payment plans to avoid default.
Anyone who may need assistance with outstanding city debt should look into using the New Start Chicago program at
www.Chicago.gov/newstartchicago — where residents can sign up for flexible payment plans for tickets and utility bills with a lower down payment and up to 60 months to repay amounts due.
Residents can learn more or make payments online at www.Chicago.gov/finance.
