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.

You may visit City Hall and request an Administrative Citation Appeal Form to complete and file; you must pay 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 before we can accept the appeal.

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 at City Hall. 

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 of the next steps in the appeal process.
