Beginning with Tax Year 2019, City Council has abolished vehicle windshield decals. Decals were not included with 2019 tax bills as there is no longer any need to display them. The Police Department no longer issues tickets for failure to display a City decal. Residential parking bumper stickers are still required in applicable parking districts.
