  • Ticket enforcement activities have increased citywide, including street sweeping violations.
  • Late payment penalties have begun to be assessed on past due utility balances.
  • Residential and municipal utility customers with payment due dates prior to June 30th have begun to be assessed for additional penalties.
  • Collection and enforcement activities, including booting, continue.
  • Ticketing will continue for public safety violations and for unpaid parking meters.
  • Relocation of cars has resumed for public infrastructure work. Please move your car when signs are posted for tree trimming and street work.
  • State-level elected officials have informed the City that the Illinois Secretary of State's office has extended the deadline for license plate renewals to Monday, August 31st. Therefore, the City will not resume ticketing for expired license plates until August 31st.

The Mayor has announced a series of measures to help those who cannot afford past-due tickets, utility bills and the like.
