Court Closure:  The Austin Municipal Court will be closed for Veterans Day on Monday, November 12th and will reopen on Tuesday, November 13th at our normal business hours (see Contacts/Locations).

The Municipal Court is the judicial branch of the government of the City of Austin. It is committed to administering justice in a fair, efficient, and timely manner. Court services are increasingly available online, by telephone, email, and through the mail which contributes to compliance in a customer service and eco-friendly way.

The courts adjudicate Class C misdemeanor cases most of which are criminal, including traffic, city ordinance, state code, juvenile, and disabled parking. Camera at Red Light violation are civil (non-criminal) cases as are most parking violations.

The four court divisions are Judiciary, Court Operations, Support Services, and the Downtown Austin Community Court (DACC).  The court is made up of more than 160 employees.
