Dear Village Resident ,
Vehicle sticker applications will be mailed out at the end of August. Make corrections or updates directly on the form. The stickers have a removable adhesive so if you replace your car just call the PD with the new vehicle information and transfer the sticker. This year's photo features the Weiland Dairy around 1905. Although greatly altered, the building still stands at the end of Hatchery Road by the entrance to Hatchery Park. New vehicle stickers must be purchased by October 1!
