The Village of Romeoville passed an ordinance prohibiting cars from parking within 15 feet of an individual or cluster of mailboxes.

The Village of Romeoville Board of Trustees passed a new ordinance of which drivers looking for a place to park should be aware.

The ordinance requires cars to not park within 15 feet of an individual or cluster of mailboxes unless the car is registered to the same address as the mailbox in question, according to a news release from the village.

"We've had a lot of residents not getting their mail because their boxes are blocked," Mayor John Noak said. "At its core, it's a good neighbor ordinance."

The ordinance is in effect. Questions should be directed to the Romeoville Police Department at 815-886-7219.
