60. Parking Citation Appeals Board
The decision as to which procedure to utilize for a grievance filed by a student shall be made solely by the university and shall be based on the fact pattern of each particular case. Each grievance shall be directed to a specific procedure and shall be accorded only one opportunity to be adjudicated unless the appeal body remands for further review.
The Parking Citation Appeals Board exists to hear appeals, as referenced in Part III, Student Grievance Procedures: 55. Parking Citations. This rule does not apply to campuses located outside of Brazos County.
There are two boards. The Student Appeals Board consists of TAMU students. The Faculty/Staff Appeals Board consists of both TAMU faculty and staff. A quorum consists of three members. A member of Transportation Services is present to serve as a resource to the board.
60.1 The Parking Citation Appeals Board meets in accordance with schedules developed by Transportation Services to allow customers to appeal parking citations believed to have been issued in error. Information is to be submitted to the board in writing.
60.2 The chair sits as a hearing officer and does not take part in the vote or otherwise participate in the deliberations of the panel, except to cast the tie breaking vote. It is the duty of the chair to rule on procedural matters and the admissibility of the evidence.
60.3 The burden of proof is upon the appellant.
60.4 The board will deliberate and inform the appellant of its decision in writing through their Texas A&M email address.
For campuses located outside of Brazos County, enforcement of these administrative processes is done at the discretion of each campus.
