Types of Cases Heard

An administrative hearing is a civil, not a criminal proceeding.  Cases are punishable by fines and a variety of other penalties, excluding jail time.  Under the administrative hearing system, an Administrative Hearing Officer, not the Village entity that issued the ticket, complaint or notice of violation, hears cases.  Law Judges, all of whom are experienced attorneys, are required to undergo state-mandated training to be professional, fair, and courteous.

The Administrative Adjudication Program hears, or may hear in the future, the following types of cases:
  • Police issued tickets
  • Parking tickets
  • Unlicensed businesses
  • Village recycling violations
  • Zoning violations
  • Animal leash violations
  • Compliance tickets

Hearings are held by Administrative Law Judge/Hearing Officer, David Eterno.
