Administrative Citations

The City of Chowchilla may find cause to issue an Administrative Citation due to possible municipal code violations. Persons who receive a citation may submit an appeal request within thirty (30) calendar days from the date the citation is served. If the thirty (30) day deadline falls on a day City Hall is closed (weekends or holidays), the deadline is extended to the next regular business day.

Download the Administrative Citation Appeal Form and submit a completed document along with payment of the full citation penalty amount noted on the front of the Administrative Citation in accordance with the Chowchilla Municipal Code Section 1.10.080 B.

If you believe you do not have the financial resources to pay the citation penalty at the time you submit an appeal, you can also submit a hardship waiver request form. Download the Request for Advance Deposit Hardship Waiver Form and include it when you submit the Administrative Citation Appeal Form.

Mail or hand-deliver the completed form(s) to:

City of Chowchilla Administrative Citation/City Clerk
Chowchilla City Hall
130 S. Second Street
Chowchilla, CA  93610

After your documents have been processed, you will be notified as to the next steps in the appeal process. For more information, please read the information on the Administrative Citation Appeal Form.
