You must have your quarterly permit renewal in by the 15th day of the last month in the current quarter in order to guarantee that you get a permit for the next quarter. You may renew in advance for as many quarters as desired. We will mail you the permits in advance of the due date. **Please Note: Your parking permit will be sold to someone on the waitlist if you do not renew by the 15th of the final month of the quarter. We encourage you to use the Night Deposit Box located in front of the Train Station Depot on West Quincy Street as the Village of Westmont is not responsible for parking permit renewals lost, or delayed in the mail.
NOTE: Anyone found abusing this option, i.e. using the replacement permit to park a second vehicle, will lose their parking permit.
Compliance with these rules is very simple and will result in an orderly transition from Zone "B" to Zone "A": You just have to remember to renew your Zone “B” permit on time to maintain your place on the upgrade list. The following steps must be performed: 1. You must have a valid Zone "B" permit to get on the upgrade waiting list. 2. Prepayment of $125.00 is required. The date on your cash register receipt will determine your place on the waiting list. 3. You will stay on this list until upgraded or you ask to be removed from the list. 4. You will be notified by mail or phone, when a Zone “A” permit is available. 5. You must make payment on your Zone “B” permit within the allotted time or your name will be removed from the upgrade list.
