            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, William P. Kelly, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J. (2 pages)

            William Roland appeals district court orders granting applications for reimbursement of room and board fees.  He argues that because the sheriff’s department filed for reimbursement as a civil judgment, it should have filed a civil petition and the failure to do so violated his due process rights for failure of notice and an opportunity to be heard.  OPINION HOLDS: Civil petitions were not required, and the constitutional claim is not preserved for our review.  We affirm.
