Violations Bureau

The Violations Bureau is established as a convenience to the public. It is not intended to replace a court appearance for pleas of Not Guilty. If you believe that you are not guilty of the offense charged, you should appear in court on the date indicated on your summons. 

Violations which may be paid outside of court proceedings may be paid in person, online or by mail.  Our normal business hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. The Municipal Court Office is closed on weekends and most holidays.
