Violations of the Lake County Nuisance Ordinance
Violations can only
be issued in unincorporated areas of Lake County. Please see the complete list of Lake County Public Nuisance Ordinances (PDF)
The following information is required to follow up on your complaint:
Administrative Adjudication Hearings
- Address, specific location or Property Index Number (PIN), if available, of the property where the violation exists
- Nature of specific violation
- Time/day of week that the violation usually occurs
Administrative Adjudication hearings are civil proceedings between Lake County and the respondent of the citation. The burden of proof is beyond a preponderance of the evidence. According to Chapter 55 ILCS 5/5-43030, formal and technical rules of evidence do not apply, thereby granting admission of photographs and police reports, and eliminating the attendance of the Deputy issuing the citation.
If you have questions regarding Administrative Adjudication, please contact the Sheriff's Office via email
or call 847-377-4000.
