Last call for $35 city stickers

Signs direct residents to the City of Kankakee sticker sales drive-up building at the former Midland States Bank, 310 S. Schuyler Ave. The $35 vehicle sticker doubles in price as of Saturday, Aug 1. Remaining times to purchase the required decal at $35 are today’s extended hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

KANKAKEE — Kankakee vehicle owners who have not yet purchased the required $35 vehicle sticker have only today and Friday to get that task accomplished without having to pay double the amount.

When the sales end at 4 p.m. Friday, the cost of the sticker goes from $35 to $70. Kankakee police will also begin ticketing vehicles for failure to have the sticker and the cost of the ticket is $100.

The drive-thru window at the former Midland States Bank, 301 S. Schuyler Ave., will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.

The vehicle sticker tax annually generates $450,000 to $475,000. The money goes into Kankakee’s general fund.

As of early this week, in excess of 9,000 vehicle stickers had been sold, noted Comptroller Elizabeth Kubal.

The city stickers are normally required to be on the front windshield of vehicles by July 1, but due to the difficulties brought on by COVID-19, the requirement was pushed back to Aug. 1.
