Administrative Citation Appeal Form

You have the right to appeal an administrative citation within 10 calendar days of the issue date. The appeal must be in writing on the form provided, include a return address, and be accompanied by the penalty amount. The appeal may be submitted in person or via mail. If submitted via mail, the appeal must be postmarked within the 10 day period. An appeal will result in an administrative hearing.

Failure of any person to properly file a written appeal within 10 calendar days shall constitute a waiver of the right to an administrative hearing and adjudication of the administrative citation or any portion thereof including the amount of the penalty. See the reverse side of the citation for more information.

Appeals not properly submitted within 10 calendar days of the issue date will not be accepted.
