To Contest a Parking Citation
Appealing the Administrative Hearing - 3rd Level
If you are not satisfied with the Hearing Officer's decision you may further contest the parking citation by appeal through the West Orange County Municipal Court as defined by CVC 402115. You cannot appeal a parking citation if you have not first obtained the results from your Initial Review Request and your Administrative Hearing. Both must be performed before you can appeal the parking citation. Furthermore, appeals must be requested within 30 days from the date of the Hearing Officer’s decision. To file for an appeal, you must do so in person at the West Orange County Municipal Court. The West Orange County Municipal Court is located at 8141 13th Street, Westminster, CA 92683. A $25 filing fee must be submitted to the court for each citation that you are appealing. If your appeal is granted, the West Orange County Municipal Court will obtain your case file from the Golden West College Parking Enforcement and will schedule your Appeal Hearing.
The case file is used by the presiding judge at the West Orange County Municipal Court for use in rendering a decision on your parking citation. If the Judge presiding over your case renders a decision to dismiss your citation, the $25 filing fee along with your parking fine will be refunded to you.
