The City will process the application and mail your City sticker(s) to your home address.
All residents of the City of McHenry are required to purchase a vehicle sticker annually for each car, truck, motorcycle and motorized recreational vehicle operated by them. These stickers are valid from May 1 of the issuing year to June 30 of the following year, and are available for purchase beginning on May 1. Pre-printed forms are mailed to residents in late April. Bring this form in to the Municipal Center when purchasing your stickers. Vehicle stickers must be purchased and displayed by July 1 to avoid being charged a $3.00 per month (or multiple thereof) late penalty. The Police Department can issue tickets to persons not purchasing vehicle stickers and a fine can be assessed to offenders. Persons just moving into the City during the year have thirty (30) days to purchase their vehicle stickers.
