What if I want to seal my driveway myself?

Homeowners will be allowed to seal their own driveways without a City license; however, the sealant they use must not contain coal tar. It is our understanding that most home improvement stores like Home Depot and Menard’s no longer sell coal tar sealants, but instead provide alternatives such as asphalt-based sealants. Businesses within the City limits will be required to not sell coal tar sealants.
