The Village of Bartlett has created a system providing for the administrative adjudication of non-vehicular violations of certain sections of the Municipal Code, including but not limited to Business and License Regulations; Health and Sanitation; Police Regulations; Motorbikes; Public Ways And Properties; Fire Protection And Prevention; Bartlett Building Code; the Bartlett Zoning Ordinance; and other ordinances of the village This means that if you have been cited for violating these ordinances, instead of going to a county court, you can request a hearing locally. An administrative hearing officer will preside, adjudicate, administer oaths, hear testimony and/or accept evidence that is relevant to the matter at hand and make a final determination of liability.

Please call the Bartlett Police Department’s Records Section at 630-837-0846 if you have any questions regarding your Local Adjudication Citation.

The grounds for setting aside a determination of liability are limited to an excusable reason for failing to appear at or request a new date for an administrative adjudication hearing.

The default judgment shall state that it shall constitute a final determination of liability if such petition is not received, if the petition is denied or if after setting of a new hearing date the person fails to appear.
