Court

When You Get A Citation:

If you have not had to post bond at the time of the violation, then you have ten days from the date of the violation to appear at the court clerk's office. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. week days, except holidays. When you come in (in person) to the Court Clerk's office, you may pay the fine (or post bond if required), or set a court date to appear for trial at a later time set by the court clerk. If you just need an extension to pay your fine, you must still come in person within the ten days and plead on your case. Then an extension will be written down by the court clerk allowing you the extra time. You will be required to sign this form.

ALL CHARGES NOT TAKEN CARE OF BY THE DUE DATE
ARE SUBJECT TO WARRANTS BEING ISSUED AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES FILED.
