Municipal Courts


It is the mission of the Municipal Court to provide a fair, neutral and courteous administration of justice by providing accessible, efficient, impartial and well reasoned resolution of all court cases with a focus on customer service. 

The Arcola Municipal Court has established policies and procedures for resolving traffic tickets and other fine-only misdemeanors in accordance with state law, but with a minimum of inconvenience. Before you attempt to resolve the case(s) against you, you should read carefully the content of the citation and handout that were given to you by the officer. You may want to seek the advice of a lawyer.

Due to COVID-19,

Arcola Municipal Court

will be opening at limited capacity in the coming weeks.

If you have been exposed to any one with COVID-19 within the past 10 days or are having any symptoms, have a fever, coughing, shortness of breath please stay home and contact the court via email. 

For any in person appointments or court dates, we are requesting that defendants wear a mask and to come alone if at all possible.

 

 If you have received a citation, it has given a directive to contact the court by a certain date. To stay in compliance with that directive please email the court at court@arcolatexas.org with your name, your citation number, your phone number, your email address, and your mailing address.

If you have not entered a plea on a charge and you pay before your court date, the court will enter a plea of no contest, find you guilty, and report the conviction to the proper authority. 

 If you would like to take care of this before you come to court, please email the court at court@arcolatexas.org for your options and fine amounts. Notice of your appearance will be mailed to the address on file if this request is not received.

You may also request an appointment to come to the clerk's window at court@arcolatexas.org

 

If you would like to request Deferred Disposition or a Driving Safety Course, please email either your driver's license, your state issued identification card, or your government issued passport, a copy of your insurance with your name on it, and a brief statement of what you are requesting to court@arcolatexas.org
