City Clerk

Administrative Enforcement Program

Enforcement of city ordinance and license violations is handled directly through the City’s Administrative Enforcement Program. This program is designed to resolve violations of the Duluth City Code through a civil process that is efficient, fair, and easy to understand.

The City has produced a handbook intended to help citizens understand the administrative fine process. If a citizen receives a ticket and is fined, this handbook explains the process by which they could either pay or appeal the ticket/fine. Additionally, the City Council has established a fee schedule which details the respective fees levied in response to specific violations of the City Code.

In order to request an administrative appeal, you must file a signed and completed Administrative Appeal Request Form in person to the City Clerk’s Office within ten (10) days of the delivery of the citation being appealed
