Tinley Park residents who failed to purchase their vehicle stickers by the June 30 deadline will have until Aug. 15 to do so without receiving a police citation. On Aug. 16, the Tinley Park Police Department will begin aggressively ticketing violators.
“The Village has established a 45-day moratorium to encourage those who haven’t purchased their vehicle stickers to do so,” Village Clerk Patrick E. Rea said. “The late fees still will apply, but tickets will not be issued for lack of compliance until Aug. 16.”
About 33,000 vehicle stickers have been sold so far, which represents the highest number in the history of the Village and more than 70 percent of the total number of estimated vehicles in Tinley Park. The same program in 2013 was successful, Rea said.
“Revenues from vehicle sticker sales go toward road maintenance, and in fairness, all of the users of our local roads should be paying their share,” Rea said.
Stickers are sold from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at Village Hall, 16250 S. Oak Park Ave., Tinley Park. Stickers also are sold 24 hours a day at the Tinley Park Police Department, 7850 W. 183rd St.
