Dear Village Resident,
Vehicle sticker applications have all been sent out and should have arrived in your mailbox or will soon. Purchase stickers through the mail, in person, or drop the form in the drop box in front of the Municipal Centre building. Your windshield should not be too hot or too cold when applying the sticker as this can cause the reusable adhesive to not work correctly. Purchase stickers by Oct. 1 to avoid late fees.
