What if I am found liable?

If you are found liable, penalties may be imposed by the ALJ as set forth by Niles ordinances. Penalties may include: fines, paying restitution (those costs to undo the damage caused by the violation), community service and/or mandatory counseling.  A non-penal administrative court cost in the amount of $15 will also be imposed.  The Village of Niles does not offer payment plans.

Hearings in which an attorney is representing a Respondent <appearance form is required> will be heard first.  Then Hearings involving property violations and non-police violations will be held first, police citations next and then parking violations last.  Hearings will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. on the first Thursday of the month for Community Development and <     > for the Police Department.
