Why was I issued a complaint/ticket?

Village departments charged with protecting the public safety, health, and welfare may issue a citation, which may be heard by the ALJ based on the observations of or investigation by Village staff members authorized to enforce Niles code of ordinances which can be accessed by <clicking here>.

When the Village of Niles determines that a violation has occurred, it will serve the party responsible for the alleged violation with a citation outlining the Village’s allegations.

Any questions as to why you were cited must be directed to the Village staff person who issued the citation or the Village’s Corporation Counsel.  You may call (847) 588-6500 or (847) 588-8000 for the Corporation Counsel.
