The Nichols Hills Municipal Court’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Nichols Hills by promoting public safety, traffic safety, and respect for the administration of justice by applying deterrents for violations of municipal ordinances. The Municipal Court is a limited jurisdiction court that hears and resolves misdemeanor, traffic, parking and code violations for adult and juvenile offenders. These charges may be filed by police officers, city officials such as animal control or code enforcement, and citizens. The Municipal Court is administered by a part-time Judge and part-time Associate Judge, City Prosecutor, and a full-time Court Clerk.
Court sessions are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month. The arraignment docket is scheduled at 10:00 am, followed by the trial and juvenile docket at 1:00 pm.
A court date is assigned to each citation. You are given the option to pay the fine on or before your given court date. Should you fail to do either, additional fines will be assessed, your driver’s license will be suspended and warrants for your arrest will be issued. After six weeks of non-payment, your case will be turned over to a collection agency.
