The deadline for purchasing 2012 Evanston vehicle stickers and residential parking permits, previously this Friday, has been extended to Jan. 5.

The city code requires all vehicles registered to an Evanston address to pay an annual wheel tax and display a valid city vehicle sticker. Applications were mailed in September.

The cost for a regular passenger car vehicle sticker is $75. A 50 percent penalty fee will be added to all applications received after Jan. 5. Rates for other types of vehicles can be found online.

Stickers and residential parking permits are available by mail, with printable forms available on the city website, or in person at the city collector’s office at the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.  between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Residents who don’t need a parking permit can purchase the vehicle sticker online.

Stickers, but not parking permits, are also available to residents who take the application form mailed to them to the Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge Ave., or the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St., between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. or at any Evanston currency exchange.

Residents buying stickers in person must also present their Illinois vehicle registration form.

Seniors 65 and older who meet income requirements are eligible for a 50 percent discount on one vehicle sticker per household by obtaining an Evanston Benefit Card Senior Discount Card.

If a resident applied for and received a discount card last year, it will not be valid this year. Seniors that do not have a current Benefit Card may apply for one at the Levy Center.
