The City of Kent Hearing Examiner is a neutral party (like a land use judge) who conducts hearings and renders decisions or recommendations on certain land use issues and code violations under provisions of the Kent City Code.
The City currently has one hearing examiner: Lee Raaen (Sound Law Center). Once a hearing has been held, the Hearing Examiner typically issues a decision or a recommendation to the City Council within 14 days.
Depending on workload, meetings are slated for the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, typically held at either 10:00 AM or 1:30 PM in Chambers West, located in Kent City Hall.
