Every year the Village of Norridge requires its resident’s to
purchase a sticker (permit) for each owned vehicle. This sticker allows
the resident to park on village streets without receiving a fine. The
village keeps track of each sticker purchased each year and requested
that the GIS department map out each address and find which households
had not purchased a sticker for 2009.
Using GIS, each address corresponding to a vehicle sticker was mapped
out showing which households had not purchased a sticker. The data was
then filtered by displaying which households had purchased a sticker
the previous year but had failed to purchase any stickers for 2009.
This gave the village a potential list of residents who had either
gotten rid of their vehicle or had failed to purchase a new sticker.
Using the address list created by GIS, the village was then able to
create a mailing list to send a letter to each resident informing them
that the village had no record of them purchasing a village sticker.
Using GIS, the village was able to determine who had failed to
purchase a vehicle sticker for 2009. By sending each resident a letter,
the village would be able to save the offenders from needless parking
violations and make sure they recoup a majority of their cost in
printing the stickers.
