The cop basically said I can either mail in the money or go to a hearing. I want to mail in the money and get it over with, but the cop wrote in a pencil and I could not see what I owed. I went to city hall and the lady said she can't see it either and the people who update the systems does not do it every day so my ticket may take 3 weeks to show. The ticket says I have only 7 days to pay the fine or else I have to go to the hearing. The lady at City Hall said that in reality, it is 7 days after the hearing, but that contradicts the ticket.

Does anyone with knowledge want to bestow their me some wisdom?

Also does this show in a background check?
During a job interview, if someone asks have I ever commited a crime or have been convicted, does an ordinance violation count?

no big deal and it's not a criminal charge

What was it for, and I have never known anything of a legal matter to ever be written in pencil.

You didn't specify what kind of ticket it was...but for parking and traffic tickets there is a website you can go on to look at all of the ticket information. Good luck.

Administrative Notice of Ordinance Violation is a type of ticket. Probably more rare because normal people may not get hit by one of these. I made a mistake on the CTA and a cop saw me basically. Don't want to get into too much detail until I pay for the ticket. It is quite funny though.

You did the crime, so do the time. The best advice offered thus far is to simply pay the fine ... and don't repeat the event again. If you don't know or can't easily determine the amount of the fine, then you should see the hearing officer in the neighborhood office ... or you may be subject to an additional $100 penalty, on top of the fine.

See now, you gave him the benefit of the doubt. I immediately went to hooking up with ... himself.
