Illinois will no longer send License Plate Renewals

If you have a vehicle license plate that expires in January, the Secretary of State of Illinois will not send you a renewal notice via US Mail!

Due to the lack of a state budget, the Secretary of State’s office is suspending the mailing of vehicle registration renewal reminder notices. By suspending this service, which will save approximately $450,000 per month, the office will be able to prolong the ability to mail vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles and license plates to vehicle owners for a few months longer before the postage account is depleted. Vehicle owners are encouraged to be mindful of their vehicle registration status. Motorists can sign up to receive reminder notices electronically by email.

 I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone
a Happy, Safe, and Prosperous New Year.

For me New Year always seems like a time to reflect the past and think about the future

To quote Transcendentalist scribe and exquisite thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson,
“You have done what you could—some blunders and absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it
serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Please try to attend our Annual meeting Thursday January 21, 2016
5PM-7PM at U S Bank 104 N. Oak Park
And help keep the spirit alive
