In case you live in Rockford, have a gravel driveway or parking lot, and weren't aware of this new ordinance from the City of Rockford; you have until November 1, 2019, to get your gravel driveway paved...or you get fined.

Here are the details from the City of Rockford on Facebook:

Now, if you're just reading this information for the first time, don't panic and start calling paving companies all mad, you may have an additional year to get the job done.

WTVO reports;

If approved, the new deadline would be pushed out to November 1st, 2020.

Feel a little better now?

You may want to start getting bids from paving companies now though before they all book up.
