Introduction & Overview
The United City of Yorkville offers Administrative Adjudication as an alternative to court. This process addresses a wide range of cases involving violations of municipal ordinances that were previously heard in the Kendall Circuit Court. Such hearings, which take place at Yorkville City Hall, expedites resolutions, reduces litigation expenses, and allows the Circuit Court to focus on more serious offenses. These hearings are also more convenient for residents who wish to contest a ticket or citation.

An administrative hearing is a civil (not a criminal) proceeding. Cases filed in adjudication are punishable by fines. Under the administrative hearing system, an Administrative Hearing Officer hears cases and not the municipal entity that issued the ticket, complaint, or notice of violation. Hearing Officers, all of whom are experienced attorneys, are required to undergo State mandated training to be professional, fair, and courteous. In Yorkville's Administrative Adjudication process, the following types of cases may be heard:
  • Administrative Tow Penalties
  • Animal Leash Violations
  • Compliance Tickets
  • Parking Tickets
  • Police Issued Tickets
  • Zoning Violations
