Details for attending the administrative hearing will be provided to you once a date and time has been scheduled.


Request MUST be made by the due date listed on the front of this notice.

OPTION 2: MUNICIPAL INFRACTION CASE

You may request that the City file a municipal infraction, instead of an administrative hearing or if you are unsatisfied with the outcome of your previous administrative hearing. (see item 1 on the left of this page)

Even if you do not request a municipal infraction, the City may file one against you.

This is a case that is tried before the Iowa District Court. There are additional court costs and a filing fee associated with filing a municipal infraction. The losing party is responsible for those costs and fees. Failure to appear for the hearing may result in a finding of liability for the municipal infraction.

To request a municipal infraction case be filed, send a request to:

Fort Dodge Police Department
702 1st Avenue South
Fort Dodge, IA 50501

Or by e-mailing trafficcam@fortdodgeiowa.org

Request MUST be made by the due date listed on the front of this notice.
