Coal Tar Ordinance – Black Top Sealant
In October 2017, Village Council passed an ordinance (§ 132.197 COAL TAR ORDINANCE) prohibiting the sale, distribution, or application of driveway and parking lot sealant products containing coal tar, identified as having greater than 0.1% Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs).
All property owners should therefore be aware of this prohibition, which can carry a fine of up to $500.00.
In addition, businesses providing asphalt sealing services are now required to apply for a permit. The permit is free to file and is available here. If your company has signed a pledge for the PAH Reduction Project, please also provide a copy of that. REMINDER: THIS PERMIT IS FILED ANNUALLY AND THE VILLAGE IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2020.

***Property owners are now required to have a Land Use Permit Waiver before having their driveways sealed. The Waiver can be found here and does not cost anything: Land Use Permit Waiver
