Bellevue's Hearing Examiner's Office provides independent oversight on a wide range of city decisions. Hearing Examiners review land-use applications, and also make rulings when residents or businesses challenge the city over taxes or code violations.
Hearing Examiners are not city staff, but private attorneys with expertise in land-use and code issues. The city contracts with these attorneys to serve as impartial third parties. Making decisions in a public forum, the Hearing Examiners ensure fairness and due process.
