Vehicle Stickers On Sale March 25
Vehicle Sticker 1516
Vehicle stickers will go on sale in the Village of Roselle on March 25. Roselle's Village Ordinance requires that every owner or operator of a motor vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, and trailer) who resides within the Village or whose motor vehicle is based within the Village must obtain a Roselle vehicle sticker.

The cost of vehicle stickers for passenger automobiles and trucks with B plates this year is $45, up from the $35 charged in the past several years. This increase follows a recommendation by the Village's Finance Planning Committee upon review of a comprehensive fee/charges study done in the Village last year. The deadline for residents in Roselle to display a new vehicle sticker is May 31.

Residents will receive a renewal application in the mail. Any changes are to be made directly on the new form and returned to the Village in the reply envelope enclosed in the mailing. Applications can either be mailed or deposited in the drop box located in front of the Village Hall. Residents who do not receive an application in the mail may download it from the Village's website, or pick one up at Village Hall. Vehicle stickers may also be purchased online via the  Vehicle Stickers page on the Village's website
Stickers purchased after the May 31 deadline will incur a late fee penalty. Failure to purchase and properly display a village sticker will result in a citation with fines that can range from $50 up to $250 per citation. The graduated late fine schedule, along with other additional information, is posted on the Vehicle Stickers page on the Village's website
Village Hall is open to the public Mondays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Tuesdays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 
Time Change? Time to Change the Batteries 
Spring Forward
Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 13, at 2:00 a.m. When changing the clocks forward an hour this spring, remember that this is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
