Hi,Our police work hard to enforce all laws, but they are never 100% successful in enforcing any particular law, although they don’t stop trying. The police have an entire year to write tickets for stickers sold this spring. It is much more reasonable to expect them to write 100 tickets a month for 12 months than 1200 tickets in one month. Our force has to prioritize their work and take the most serious offenses first and then fill in the rest as time permits. Please allow them to use the full year they have to work on these tickets.We have also found that writing the tickets does not mean that people will comply. We are looking at ways to force these people to both buy their stickers and pay their fines. Within a few months we plan to pass an ordinance that allows either booting or towing for those who ignore tickets.I understand that citizens who follow the rules can be frustrated by those who don’t, but we cannot give up in our quest to have a safe and orderly society.Ed Ritter

Hello, me again..
 Just to say that writing down all the houses/addresses with no city stickers would go thru all the ink in a package of Bic pens.. many are parked.. some even in the street at very early hours.. neighbor`s RED truck is still in the driveway with NO sticker.. would seem to me that a slow steady drive down ANY street would show that most cars are sticker-less… some even having last years.. which is a no brainer that this car is a C`ville car.. middle of August and same cars.. same trucks, same houses… no stickers.. I think next year they should be banned.. so that those that actually pay for them can then save hard earned money also. This is not an enforceable ordinance.. so why have it? Very unfair..

    Harley Chick hits the nail right on the head. This being said, many of the villages ordinances could be considered unenforceable. Ordinances are not enforced fairly. What’s good for one should be good for all but that is not the way it works. The residential parking ordinance is another example of how some can park their big trucks in their driveways and some can’t. I can drive down the street and see these vehicles illegally parked. If I can see them why can’t anyone else????????
