Dear Village Resident,
Vehicle sticker applications will be mailed out soon. Make corrections or updates directly on the form. Remember, the stickers have a removable adhesive so if you replace your car, the sticker can be transferred. Just call the PD with the new vehicle information. This year's sticker features Alb Pepping's Tavern around 1912 which stood at the NW corner of Blivin Street and Hatchery Road. Wagner's Hotel was next door. There is a vacant lot where both buildings stood. The sign says "Orders taken here for Western Bry's Bottled Beer." The family lived upstairs. New vehicle stickers must be purchased by October 1st.
