Types of Hearings

The Administrative Hearings program deals with two main types of fines: Administrative Citations and Special Assessments. Descriptions of both are listed below. See a description of the hearing process.

Administrative Citation

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 a notice of violation letter, but they can be issued immediately in certain cases. A citation is appealable by written objection up to twenty-five (25) days after the issue date. Please note that even when an appeal is filed or the citation is paid, the City is able to continue issuing additional citations until compliance is achieved.

Special Assessment

There are several types of assessments:

In all cases, the property taxpayer or rental property contact will receive a notice of intent to assess letter and, if they wish to appeal, must file a written objection no later than fifteen (15) days before the hearing date listed in the notice. A special assessment is also sometimes referred to as a levy.
