Administrative Hearing for Vehicle and Parking Violations
The Village of Skokie started the Administrative Hearing Program for parking violations during June of 2008. This program allows the Village to hold a hearing on any parking tickets issued by a Police Officer or Parking Enforcement Officer that the registered owner wishes to contest. The Administrative Hearing seeks to increase compliance with parking regulations and streamline the process. Individuals who want to contest the violation appear at an Administrative Hearing at Village Hall, 5127 Oakton Street. Prior to the implementation of the Administrative Hearing, individuals contested the tickets at the Court House. A few examples of parking violations are a vehicle without a valid Village vehicle sticker; parking in Skokie Swift parking lot without depositing the fee; parking in a designated fire lane, etc.
The administrative process is intended to be citizen friendly, including not needing an attorney and more convenience for residents. The Administrative Hearing is less formal than a court proceeding. After the person who received the ticket presents their case, the Administrative Hearing Officer makes a ruling of whether the person is liable or not.
Administrative Hearings are generally conducted on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Village Hall Council Chambers at 5127 West Oakton Street. The hearings are open to the public.
For tickets issued prior to May 7, 2008, please visit the Scofflaw/Prosecution webpage.
