gives citizens the opportunity to contest Village ordinance violations. These proceedings are civil in nature rather than criminal and cases are heard by a certified hearing officer instead of a judge. Administrative Adjudication provides Police Officers, Code Enforcement Officers and other Village employees, the ability to issue citations for minor Village ordinance violations without criminally charging a person.
Administrative Adjudication is responsible for prosecuting parking violations, administrative tows, animal citations and various other Village ordinance violations. The hearings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 1:30 pm. at the Clarendon Hills Police Department, located at 448 Park Ave., Clarendon Hills, IL.
Local Ordinance and Parking Violations can be paid at the Clarendon Hills Police Department prior to the hearing date unless "Must Appear" is noted on the citation. All payments made after business hours can be placed in the payment box located in the lobby.
For any questions, please contact the Records Department at (630) 286-5460. More information regarding the Administrative Adjudication process can be found by clicking here.
What Happens If a Notice of Violation is Ignored?
If you ignore the Notice, the hearing officer may enter a Default Judgment against you based on the evidence presented. A "Default Judgment" is similar to a Judge's order in that it can be used to place a lien on your property, garnish your wages and/or affect your credit. The Village will request that the maximum fine be imposed in default matters.
What Happens If Someone Does Not Comply with a Hearing Officer's Order?
A hearing officer's order can be enforced in the same manner as a Judge's order in that it can be used to place a lien on your property, garnish your wages and/or affect your credit.
