The mission of the Municipal Court, created by the City Charter, is to provide due process and justice in an impartial, fair, and efficient manner to its residents, visitors, and employees.
Who We Are
The Municipal Court’s authority and responsibility is established by the Home Rule Charter and State law. It functions to adjudicate and process Municipal Code and Charter violations.
The Court will process approximately 12,000 cases in 2010 with the following attendant responsibilities: maintain Traffic Violations Bureau for “decriminalized” traffic infractions; formal arraignment on all other charges with advisement of legal rights and procedures; provision of a trial by judge or jury for disputed violations; sentencing of convicted violators; keep records and report convictions as required; maintain administrative record keeping; issue and account for warrants for the arrest of non–compliant offenders; collect fines and costs; and set minimum fines and costs except as otherwise established by local or State law.
