Appeals Process

1. Any parker who has received a parking citation on North Seattle College property has the right to either pay or appeal the citation.

2. Per WAC Per WAC 132-116-045 (7), appeals to reverse or reduce parking violation tickets shall be done in person or in writing with the parking enforcement office in accordance with WAC 132F-108-050.

3. Per WAC 132F-108-050, this appeals process is defined as a ‘brief adjudicative procedure’ and will be conducted in person or in writing

4. Primary appeal is through Transportation Coordinator at the Security Office College Center 1252;  the acting hearing officer must not be the same officer who issued the citation

5. The Transportation Coordinator will consider citation history and any mitigating factors; this consideration may result in a reduction of fine or a reduction of penalty

6. A reduction to “warning” will occur if the acting hearing officer determines the infraction did occur but with explanation; reduction to warning does not equate to “voiding the citation.”

8. If unsatisfied with outcome, 2nd level appeal is reviewed by Director (unless Director issued the citation)
