parking ban exemptions

Vehicle sticker scofflaws could face ticket if ordinance approved

Some Homewood residents have found the process of obtaining vehicle stickers and overnight parking ban exemptions more complicated than usual this year. There's a connection to the state's budget woes.

Residents who haven't yet obtained a sticker might be issued a ticket if they don't comply by Aug. 1 if the village approves an ordinance on the agenda. The orginal deadline for purchasing a sticker without penalty was May 31.

New Homewood parking ordinances approved

Some Homewood residents may soon be looking for parking alternatives following approval Tuesday, June 14, of two new ordinances by the village board.

Police Chief Bill Alcott proposed both ordinances at the May 24 board meeting. Both ordinances are supported by Fire Chief Bob Grabowski.

The first ordinance prohibits parallel parking on both sides of a street if the roadway is less than 20 feet in width.
