Information about tickets issued by one of the municipal police departments should be asked of the city issuing the ticket.If no accident or DUI (driving under the influence) was involved tickets may paid in the Clerk of Court's office up to the date of the court appearance shown on the ticket. Personal checks are not accepted by this office. Payment may be made as follows:
If the ticket is not paid before the date of the court appearance shown on the ticket, appearance in court is necessary to avoid a bench warrant being issued.
If an accident or DUI was involved no cash bonds (payment of tickets) are allowed; instead, the individual must appear in court before the judge. If the ticket was issued for DUI, the individual will be notified by the Clerk of Court's office of the date to appear; if for accident only, the court date is shown on the ticket.
