Appeals must be submitted in writing, together with an appeal notification form, and filed with the City Clerk’s Office no later than 5 p.m. on the last day of the appeal period.
The hearing examiners have jurisdiction over most appeal matters, and procedures can be found in the city code:
- Chapter 20.35 (land use decisions);
- Chapter 1.18 (civil violations);
- Chapter 22.02 (environmental procedures);
- Chapter 4.03 (correction of tax); or
- Chapter 22.16 (transportation impact fee).
An outline of appeal procedures may be found in each chapter identified above. Other city codes or ordinances may provide for hearings to be conducted by a hearing examiner.
The Hearing Examiner's Office does not hear parking ticket appeals. Typically, the reverse side of a citation ticket includes contact information to address an appeal. Please read this portion for the needed information and contact the vendor directly. For information on appeals of tickets issued by Bellevue Police Department Parking Enforcement, please contact King County District Court Bellevue Division at 206-205-9200.
