Coal Tar Ordinance – Black Top Sealant

Black Top

In October 2017, Village Council passed an 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.

For a list of names this product goes by, review the list found at this link.

If you are a property owner that would like to have their driveway re-sealed, please use the Land Use Permit WAIVER available here:  Application for Waiver and be sure to specify which company you will be using.
