On Wednesday, March 13, 2013, Chicago City Clerk Mendoza introduced legislation into city Council to begin the first major overhaul to the new Year-Round city vehicle sticker. The summer 2013 will be the last time residents will receive their June to June sticker renewable form. Residents will be asked on the renewal form for their email and vehicle identification number as part of the first phase in 2013.
“This vital information will help us as we upgrade our technological infrastructure and streamline the transition to a new system,” Mendoza said. “The changes coming are big and we are taking the necessary steps now to notify everyone of how they will be affected to ensure this is a smooth transition.”
Notification of the upcoming changes to the city vehicle sticker sales and how it will impact the residents will be sent out this spring.
In 2014, during the second phase of the transition, city vehicle owners will be assigned a new sticker expiration month based on their vehicles Illinois License Plate Registration expiration. Senior motorist over the age of 65 will not be affected by these changes, and will remain on a June to June schedule.
“This marks the beginning of a transition to a sensible system that will deliver a better customer service experience to the people of Chicago. There will be a six-month offset between the expiration of license plate registrations and Vehicle Stickers to help households budget for vehicle costs," City Clerk Mendoza said.
