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.
