The village of Riverside, Il. in cook county has a village wide past due "Vehical Sticker Enforcement Effort" . They are chargeing owners of vehicles that have not been stickered with past fees and assessing a $10.00 a month penaltie starting from 2006-2010. At no time were the residents notified that they were in violation and that fees were being assessed against them. The average fee with penelties is $660.00.
When the village was called, in response thay stated that they put a notice of "vehicle Sticker Amnesty" in the water bill and a note in the local paper. Stating this was sufficient notification. In my case I rent and do not get a water bill. Have they met their responsibility? Do I have to pay all these fees? Is there any recourse?
