Alderman Ted Polashek of the 6th ward in Berwyn released a new proposal that would grant free vehicle stickers to veterans.
Polashek thinks that this proposal will make a positive statement in Berwyn. He believes that this proposal will show gratitude for veterans as well as their families.
“I feel that if you are a veteran than you deserve a vehicle sticker. You cannot put a price on their service. It is a small gratitude to show them our appreciation” he says.
Senior citizens already get free stickers so if the proposal were to be approved then veterans would just have to show proof of their service in order to obtain a free sticker.
Polashek says that he has gotten some criticisms but he has also gotten a lot of support and appreciation from the community as well.
