SEC. 7-59.  WAIVER OF FINE DEPOSIT.
   (A)   A responsible person requesting an administrative hearing may also request a waiver of the fine deposit. The request for waiver of fine deposit must be received by the city manager within 30 days of the issuance of the civil citation. The city manager shall designate an address to submit or mail requests for waivers of fine deposits.
   (B)   The hearing officer shall set the date, time, and location for hearings regarding requests for waivers of fine deposits. A responsible person requesting a waiver of a fine deposit bears the burden of establishing by substantial evidence that he/she does not have the financial ability to deposit the fine. Unless the hearing is otherwise continued, failure of the responsible person to attend the hearing shall constitute an abandonment of the request for a waiver of the fine deposit.
   (C)   All requests for waiver of the fine deposit shall be granted or denied by the hearing officer at the hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, the hearing officer shall set the date for the administrative hearing which shall be within 45 days of the conclusion of the hearing regarding the request for waiver of the fine deposit. A copy of the notice of decision shall be delivered or mailed to the responsible person within five working days of the conclusion of the hearing.
   (D)   If the waiver is denied, the responsible person shall deposit the fine amount within 30 days of the date on the notice of decision. Failure of a responsible person to make the deposit within the time required shall be deemed an abandonment of the administrative hearing.
   (E)   A request for a waiver of the fine deposit does not extend any time periods set forth in this chapter, except the time for deposit of the fine. The hearing officer's decision shall be final and is not subject to judicial review.
