Annual Stickers to be Added to Parking Hangtag Permits

Annual stickers will be required on Lab parking hangtag permits starting in January. This will ensure everyone who parks here actually works here. New stickers will be issued each year in December, similar to annual stickers from the DMV. Staff can get stickers from division contacts starting today (Dec. 11). Starting Jan. 14, those without stickers will receive a warning from Lab security patrols. Go here for more on parking.
