(Court opinion corrected 5/30/14.) Municipal Code indicates legislature's intent that a home-rule municipality can enforce order entered by its administrative adjudication hearing officer. Village properly attempted to enforce orders assessing fines for ordinance violations by filing petitions to enforce administrative adjudication orders, accompanied by exemplified copies of relevant adjudication orders. Once orders were properly enrolled Village could commence collection proceedings.(BURKE and McLAREN, concurring.)
