All traffic violations issued by the city are processed by the court. Punishment of these offenses is by fine only. The court maintains records of all traffic and misdemeanor complaints and convictions, processes payments of fines, prepares documents and schedules trials, notifies witnesses and attorneys of court dates, processes overdue notices of outstanding fines and collects data for reporting purposes. The office also processes warrants issued for non-payment of outstanding fines.
