Coal Tar Sealant Ban in Effect for Driveway and Parking Lot Paving

Coal Tar

Are you having your driveway seal coated this summer? Please be aware that the Village has banned the use of sealants with coal tar in them and requires all pavement sealant professionals working in town to be licensed.

Pavement sealant professionals are required to fill out a license application with the Village and must display a decal on their vehicles. Homeowners who sealcoat their own driveways do not need a license but are prohibited from using coal-tar-based sealants. Home Depot and other retailers do not sell coal tar sealants.

For frequently asked questions and more information, visit the Village's website or contact the Community Development Department at 847.719.7484.
