The daily fee for parking at the Metra Station is $1.75 per vehicle. Parking is first come first serve.

Applications may be mailed into the Village Hall along with a $55.00 check two weeks prior to the beginning of a new two-month period. Your application will be processed and a parking pass will be mailed back to you
