When a person is issued a City of La Vista parking citation and they want to contest the citation, the person receiving notice of a parking violation may file an informal notice of dispute with the city within seven (7) days of the occurrence of the violation. Receipt of this notice of dispute within seven (7) days means that the fine specified in the Master Fee Ordinance will apply for each violation that the defendant timely disputes and is not determined in defendant’s favor, provided that payment is made within seven (7) days of the date of a notice to the defendant of the determination. For purposes of notice to the defendant, defendant will be deemed to have received notice upon hand delivery or two days after it is placed in the United States Mail, whichever occurs first. If full payment is not received within seven (7) days of the notice of determination, the fines shall increase as indicated in Code of Ordinances as though the notice of dispute was never received. Notices of dispute must be written and filed with the La Vista City Clerk at 8110 Park View Blvd., La Vista, Nebraska.
Informal notices of dispute will be evaluated and a decision will be made whether or not to recommend the City Attorney dismiss the violation. The parking violator shall be notified by United States Mail sent to his or her last known address as to the decision.
