This is an Administrative Review Process. Please complete this form if you believe the parking ticket received by you is unwarranted because the facts alleged on the ticket fail to show an ordinance was violated or the parking meter was inoperable and you reported it within 24 hours after issue of the ticket. An Administrative Review Panel will consider the matter and make a determination on the merits of your case. Be complete, and include any documentation and/or diagrams, as this is the only evidence that will be considered by the review panel. A copy of the panel's decision will be mailed to you.
