The decision may be one or a combination of the orders listed below.
- Imposed – If the administrative hearing officer finds that the City followed ordinances, statutes, and rules, the citation or assessment may be imposed, which means that it must be paid. Citation payments are due within thirty days of the hearing, unless otherwise stated by the administrative hearing officer, while assessment payments are due by the end of the Levy Year. In 2021, the assessment payment deadline is November 24.
- Reduced – The administrative hearing officer also has the ability to impose a reduced amount.
- Stayed – The administrative hearing officer may impose a citation but, for a variety of reasons, stay it. This means that the citation, or part of the citation, wouldn't need to be paid, often under certain conditions. Please note that if all conditions of the stay aren't met, the stayed amount would need to be paid.
- Dismissed – The administrative hearing officer may dismiss the issue, meaning that the City failed to meet the burden of proof, and no payment is due.
