More

If you plan to plead not guilty and appear in Court you must notify the Court.  If you fail to notify the Court it may be necessary to make additional appearances.  Please see the back of your ticket or summons for additional information.

If the “Court Appearance Required” box on your ticket or summons is marked then you must appear in Court on the date and time indicated.  

If you would like to change a Court date you must contact the Municipal Court.   Cases may or may not be eligible for reschedule.  A request for a new Court date does not excuse your appearance for the existing Court date.
