Municipal Court - Summons
A SUMMONS REQUIRES THAT YOU MUST APPEAR IN COURT
- MUST is the key phrase here. If you received a summons, a ticket not giving you the option to pay in advance, you are obligated to appear in Municipal Court on the date listed on the ticket.
- If you can't appear in Court on the specified date, contact the Court Clerk. You can be granted a ONE TIME ONLY - to the next Court date - new Court date. Failure to show up on your scheduled Court date on a summons ticket, without contacting the Court Clerk, will result in a warrant being issued for your arrest.
- If you fail to appear at your rescheduled Court date, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. There are additional fees you must pay if a warrant is issued for your arrest.
