Overview

The Municipal Court has jurisdiction to hear and determine all cases under the Charter and ordinances of the City. The City Prosecutor prosecutes all cases in City Court and prosecutes all appeals to the Circuit Court of St. Louis County arising from City Court judgments.

 

As a division of the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, the Municipal Court is responsible for the certification of appeals and jury trial requests to the court of higher jurisdiction.

 

Court Sessions

The Municipal Court holds forty-eight (48) court sessions a year. These sessions are held to handle traffic, non-traffic, housing and environmental tickets, and summonses. Defendants, police officers, and witness are summoned by the court using appearance notices and subpoenas.

 

Court Software Applications Update

During fiscal year 2005-2006, the court’s software applications continued to be upgraded, which improved record keeping, enabled staff to be more efficient with their time, and reduced the amount of overtime needed. The Municipal Court’s effort to improve the parking ticket management system continues, in conjunction with the Police Department.  Customer service continues to be a high priority for the Violations Bureau.

 

Violations Bureau

The Violations Bureau is responsible for the administrative functions of the Municipal Court. The office staff processes parking and traffic tickets, complaints, and code violations.

 

Other responsibilities include processing cash bonds, restitution payments, miscellaneous refunds, updating cases in system with continuance code, and closing cases. The Bureau also remits monthly payments to the State and St. Louis County for Crime Victims, the Police Officer Training Fund, and the Domestic Violence Shelter. In addition, summonses, trial notices, and subpoenas are prepared, as well as handling received correspondence.

 

Hours

The Violations Bureau is open to the public during regular City Hall hours to process complaints and accepts fines.

The Court seeks to maintain good inter-departmental communication and relations, and to serve the public in the most effective ways possible.
