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.
