needed, and is responsible for raising funds to support the caucus system. Residents interested in serving on the Village Nominating Committee should contact firstname.lastname@example.org

CUSTOMER PARKING Short-term parking (2 hours or less) is found on most streets in the business district. The time limitations are enforced from 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. daily with the exception of Sundays and the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th
of July, Labor Day,
Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. A Village ordinance requires that vehicles be moved a distance of at least 1000 feet if parking for more than the two hour limit. Shoppers who need to park for longer than two hours can park in the four hour parking zone on the north side of Park Avenue in front of the Glencoe Union Church. While the four hour zone may not be as convenient as the short term spaces, the parking is free and customers are encouraged to use it. In addition, the commuter lot is available for free parking Monday through Friday after 10 a.m. and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Commuters, employees and customers may purchase permits at the Village Hall allowing them to park all day in various lots around the train station. They are available at a cost of $270 for an annual permit or $75 for a quarterly permit. Individual daily permits can be purchased for $2.00 each. Permit parking in the commuter lot is enforced weekdays only until 10 a.m. Free commuter lot parking is available after that time, as well as on weekends and holidays.
Employees of businesses located in the Village can obtain free permit parking passes allowing them to park for free (as spaces are available) in one of several permit zones. Unless otherwise specified, all permit zones are enforced Monday-Saturday. Employees wishing to obtain a permit must contact the Public Safety Department, provide proof of employment within the Village and not have any outstanding parking citations.
