The Chief Hearings Officer acts on behalf of City Council to conduct quasi-judicial administrative hearings and render impartial decisions related to code enforcement, land use, vehicle tows, appeals, and other types of cases.

The Hearings Office is a division of the City Auditor’s Office, which provides it administrative support and a neutral base from which to make its decisions, which are subject to appellate review. As an elected official, the Auditor is independent of the Mayor, Commissioners, and City management.

In addition to hearing cases and preparing written decisions, the Chief Hearings Officer manages a small office. The Hearings Office is staffed by two full-time administrative clerks and one part-time Hearings Officer. The Chief Hearings Officer may assign cases to rotating on-call Hearings Officers under contract to the Auditor’s Office when outside assistance is needed to manage caseloads, conflicts, or provide land-use expertise.

The Auditor’s Office values a diverse workforce and seeks ways to foster a culture of equity, diversity and inclusion in delivering public services and everyday interactions in the workplace. The Office encourages candidates with experience working with a broad range of individuals and diverse communities to apply.
