Administrative Adjudication
The City of Crystal Lake’s Administration Adjudication Division hears a wide range of cases involving violations of municipal ordinances that were once heard in the McHenry County Circuit Court. An Administrative hearing is a civil, not a criminal proceeding. Cases are punishable by fines and a variety of other penalties, excluding jail time.

The Administrative Adjudication Division hears, or may hear in the future, the following types of cases: 

  • Police Issued Tickets
  • Fire Code Violations
  • Building Code Violations
  • Zoning Violations

Administrative Adjudications expedite resolutions and reduce expenses.
