City of Colwich

Municipal Court

The Municipal Court is the court where alleged violations of City ordinance and the penal statutes of Kansas are tried. The Court’s responsibility is to guarantee the lawful rights of all who are brought before it. The majority of cases in the Municipal Court consist of violations of city traffic ordinances. The court provides a forum in which citizens may receive a swift and impartial trial on charges brought against them. A person is not entitled to a jury trial by this court-all evidence is heard by the Municipal Court Judge. If a person is convicted, the Judge may impose a fine, a sentence, or both in accordance with City ordinances. Citizens may represent themselves before the Judge without legal counsel if they so choose. An appeal from the Municipal Court may be taken to the District Court of Sedgwick County.

The payment of traffic violations that do not require an appearance before the Municipal Court Judge are handled through the Administrative Services office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. An after hours drop box is available on the property of the Administrative Center complex. If you choose to use this service, please include your ticket, along with a check or money order.

Court sessions are held at the Administrative Center, 310 S. Second St., the first Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m.
