The Village of Bartlett has created a system providing for the administrative adjudication of vehicular standing parking violations and vehicle compliance violations. This means that for these specific types of citations, 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 see the steps in the graphic below for your options when you are issued a parking or compliance citation. Also here are the links to the forms you should use to request a citation review or an in-person or written adjudication hearing.

Failure to Appear or Pay

The failure to pay the indicated fine and any applicable penalty or to appear at the hearing in the time and manner specified will result in a determination of liability for the cited violation in the amount of the fine or penalty indicated. Upon the final determination of liability for the failure and the exhaustion of, or failure to exhaust, available administrative or judicial procedures for review, any unpaid fine or penalty or both will constitute a debt due and owing the Village of Bartlett.

Petition to Vacate a Default Judgment
If you failed to appear at the administrative adjudication hearing, you may petition to set aside a default judgment and determination of liability.  

You need to complete and submit the Petition to Vacate Default Judgment form to the police department’s ordinance enforcement administrator within 21 days of the date on the Findings, Decision and Order and the Notice of Determination of Liability.  

The grounds for setting aside a determination of liability and not appearing at the administrative adjudication hearing are limited to: 
— the cited violation fine had already been paid
— you were not the owner or lessee of the cited vehicle on the date the violation was issued
— or an excusable failure to appear at or request a new date for a hearing.  

You will be notified by the administrative hearing officer by first class mail if the determination of liability has been set aside with the date, time, and place for your new administrative adjudication hearing on the merits of the violation for which the determination of liability has been set aside.

In regard to final determinations of liability of vehicular standing and parking violations and vehicle compliance violations made under this chapter, the administrative hearing officer’s determination of liability shall become final upon denial of a timely petition to vacate and/or set aside that determination, or upon expiration of the period for filing the petition to vacate without a filing have been made where a person fails to appear at a hearing to contest the alleged violation in the time and manner specified in a prior mailed notice.

Driver’s License Suspension Review
You may challenge the accuracy of the certified report made to the Illinois Secretary of State in accordance with section 6-305.5 of the Illinois Vehicle Code when the owner or lessee of a registered vehicle fails to pay any fine or penalty due and owing the Village of Bartlett as a result of ten (10) or more violations of village vehicular standing and/or parking regulation violations and thereby cause the suspension of that person’s driver’s license.  

You need to complete and submit the License Suspension Review form to the police department’s ordinance enforcement administrator within seven (7) days after receiving notice of the impending driver’s license suspension from the Illinois Secretary of State.

The grounds for challenging the accuracy of the certified report made to the Illinois Secretary of State on the License Suspension Review form are limited to the following reasons: the person was neither the owner nor the lessee of the vehicle receiving ten (10) or more citations on the date or dates such notices were issued or the person has paid the fine and any penalties for the ten (10) or more violations indicated on the certified report.

The police department’s ordinance enforcement administrator shall render a determination within fourteen (14) business days of receipt of the License Suspension Review form and shall notify you of the determination.
