Administrative Hearing Adjudication
Administrative Adjudication is a proceeding in front of a hearing officer who listens to evidence presented by the City of Pekin and by the accused who then makes a determination of liability or non-liability. Such hearings can be utilized for non-criminal offenses that are punishable only by fine. Such hearings allow the accused to present their case in a less formal atmosphere where the strict rules of evidence in the circuit court do not necessarily apply. The hearing officer is an attorney licensed by the State of Illinois. Illinois statutes allow for an appeal of the hearing officer’s determination in the circuit court.
Hearings are scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, making these hearings much more accessible than the circuit court. These hearings are designed for a fair and efficient disposition of an alleged ordinance violation.
