Municipal Court

Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Missouri Supreme Court has issued an Order closing all courts until April 3, 2020; however, that date could be extended.

If your court date was scheduled for April 1, 2020, due to the Supreme Court’s Order, your case has been continued to Thursday, May 7, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m.

If your charge is payable in Violations Bureau without having a required court appearance, you have the following options to dispose of the charge:

  • Mail the signed ticket along with payment to the Court in the envelope provided to you by the police officer;
  • Go on-line to and pay your fine; this site charges an additional 4%;
  • Call CourtMoney at 1-877-222-4668 and use Form Number 121501; by using this method, you will be charged 4%, plus an additional $3.50; or
  • City Hall is not allowing anyone inside the building at this time; therefore, you can use the utility drop box located in the east parking lot.  Please mark the envelope as a court payment not a utility payment.

Should you have any questions, you can contact the Court at 573-547-2594.
