If you choose to pay in person, this must be during regular office hours, and you will need to supply identification at payment.

Payment methods accepted include debit and credit cards, cash, or money orders.
We do not accept personal checks, and we recommend never sending cash via the mail system.

For misdemeanor offenses, the Municipal Court Magistrate may choose to issue a warrant of arrest. For this process to start, the incident must first be reported to the police department to create an incident report. From there, the police can then refer the complainant to the municipal court.

The Magistrate can then place the complainant under oath and request a sworn written statement. It will be determined whether sufficient evidence is available to establish probable cause of an offense being committed. If confirmed, a warrant of arrest will then be issued. As part of this process, the complainant will be required to give testimony in court. Defendants in these cases will be able to make bond in line with the specifics of the current bond schedule.
