After your initial appeal, you can request a hearing with a County Court Judge within 10 days of the citation date. In order to do so, you will need to fill out a Request for Hearing form and have it notarized. Please note, the form must be received within 10 days of the citation at the Cocoa Beach City Hall. A hearing will be scheduled for you at a time a County Court Judge will determine whether a parking violation has been committed.
Please note that Pursuant to Section 316.1967, Florida Statutes, an election to request a hearing constitutes a waiver of the right to pay the penalty set forth on the citation and the County Judge may impose a fine not to exceed $100.00 ($250 for Handicap Citations), plus court costs, for a parking violation. Failure to comply with this citation within 10 days will result in an increased penalty as shown on the citation.
You may return the form in person to the Cashier in City Hall or email the form to the Finance Department.
