Municipal Hearings

The Municipal Hearings Officer hears all appeals to traffic, fire, and animal citations.

Hearings are conducted 21 days from the date the ticket was issued. Tickets over 21 days cannot be appealed and a penalty is automatically added to the fine.

When mailing a payment for tickets 19 days old or over, please call the Traffic and Parking Division at 508-324-2577. It could take a few days before the payment is processed and calling the office prevents a late fee from being assessed.

Hearings are scheduled Monday through Thursday during June to September from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  and from 11:00 2:00 p.m. during the months of October through May.

To request a hearing, please complete the Municipal Hearing Request Form. You will be contacted soon to schedule your hearing date.
