The Office of the Hearing Examiner serves to provide fair and impartial quasi-judicial proceedings in which the public is encouraged to participate. The Hearing Examiner conducts six different types of proceedings: Land Use Application Decisions, Departmental Appeals, Public Works Variances, Impounded Vehicle Hearings, Forfeiture Hearings and Humane Society Appeals. Typically, land us matters are scheduled on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. All other matters are scheduled as-needed.
