A citation is issued by a City official for violations of the Minneapolis Code of Ordinances and some Minnesota Rules and Statutes. It’s an administrative fine, issued instead of a criminal citation.
Generally, a citation follows an order to correct letter, but they can be issued immediately in certain cases. A citation is appealable within 25 days of when it was issued. You can file an appeal online.
Please note that even when an appeal is filed or the citation is paid, the City is able to continue issuing additional citations until the order is completed.
