How do I dispute a parking ticket?

Beginning May 1, 2014, the Village of Hanover Park began utilizing an adjudication process for the mediation of all parking and local ordinance tickets. If one is a resident of the Village and receives a parking ticket, on the ticket is a hearing date should you wish to be heard in regard to the violation. Hearings are held at the Village Hall, 2121 Lake Street, Room 214. Simply report on the date assigned and check in with the clerk. Please be advised that in accordance with Article XVIII Section 2-744(D)(4), if one is found liable at a hearing then a $100 court fee will be assessed on top of the initial fine of the ticket.

If one is a Non-Resident of the Village the individual may waive their appearance and submit an affidavit stating the facts or reasons for contesting the ticket. These forms may be obtained at the Police Department front desk or available on the Village website and must be submitted or postmarked within 10-days from the date of the violation.

Please be advised that in accordance with Article XVIII Section 2-744(D)(4) if the Adjudicating Judge determines one is liable then a $100 court fee will be assessed on top of the initial fine of the ticket.
