Appeal A Parking Citation

 

To dispute a parking citation, you must do the following within fifteen (15) days from the date of issuance: 

Request for Administrative Review: The recipient of a parking citation may submit in writing within fifteen (15) days from the date of issuance of the parking citation, a request for an Administrative Review of the citation. You may submit your Request for Administrative Review online or by visiting the Parking Division Administrative Office. Parking Violations Bureau (PVB) staff will conduct an administrative review based upon the evidence provided and make a decision regarding the citizen’s review request. Appellants will be notified of the decision within four (4) weeks via letter to the address provided in their request. You may also email [bot protected email address].

Request for Administrative Hearing: If all PVB defined requirements are met, and a request for an Administrative Hearing has been received from the registered owner within fifteen (15) days following the mailing date of the Administrative Review decision, PVB staff shall schedule a Hearing with the Hearing Officer within five (5) business days from date of receipt of the request for an Administrative Hearing. The Administrative Hearing date will be selected based on the Hearing Officer’s schedule and availability. Citizen’s availability will be accommodated based upon the Hearing Officer’s schedule and availability. An amount equal to the original citation fine amount shall be submitted with the request for an Administrative Hearing, and this payment will be held as a deposit until a decision has been made by the Hearing Officer. If the decision of the Hearing Officer is in favor of the appellant, then the deposited amount will be returned to the registered owner of the vehicle, or if the deposit was made in the form of a check, then the deposit will be returned to the account holder of the checking account.  If the Hearing Officer decides to uphold the citation, then the deposited amount shall be applied to other unpaid parking citations directly linked to the registered owner in the order of the oldest citation being paid first until the deposited amount is fully consumed. Should a balance of the deposited amount remain after all outstanding citations have been paid, then the remaining balance will be returned to the registered owner, or if the deposit was made in the form of a check, then the balance of the deposit will be returned to the account holder of the checking account.
