Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS - BY MITCH DUDEK, STAFF RE­PORTER mdudek@sun­times.com | @mitch­dudek

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.
