Expiation Notice payments
Local Government is responsible for enforcing a range of legislation, some of which carry expiable offences to assist in protecting the community, the landscape, the local environment and amenity.
How to pay
If you have been issued an expiation notice and require a time extension or wish to pay in instalments, you may enter a payment arrangement through the State Government's Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit (FERU) on 1800 659 538, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.fines.sa.gov.au. Please note an additional fee will apply to enter into an arrangement.
Unpaid expiation notices will be referred to FERU for collection. Any dispute or payment arrangement will need to be arranged directly with FERU.
Request a review of an Expiation Notice
Before the due date of your expiation notice, you may request Council review the issuing of your expiation notice. All requests must be in writing. You may have an expiation notice reviewed on the basis that:
- you did not commit the offence on the notice
- an expiation notice should not have been given with respect to the offence
- you were not the owner or driver of the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence, in the case of motor vehicle-related offences
- the expiation notice is defective
- the alleged offence to which the notice relates is trifling.
To assess an application for a review, Council will require:
- your application must be in writing, stating the reasons for wanting the matter reviewed, the relevant circumstances which lead to the issuing of the expiation notice as well as any with supporting evidence.
- evidence accepted and considered may include medical reports, detailed mechanical invoices or receipts, a letter from your doctor, social worker, or community service provider, photographs, and statements in support of your application.
- in certain circumstances, a statutory declaration may be required to accompany the application for review.
