Construction Zone citation

If you were charged with speeding in a construction zone and workers were not present, your fine will be the same as a normal speeding violation.

If you were charged with speeding in a construction zone and workers were present, your fine will be doubled and you will not be able to take a driver’s safety class to have the ticket dismissed.

Parking citation

You have two options if you received a parking violation:

  • Speak with the Judge on your appearance date at 9:00 am
  • Pay the fine by appearance date on your citation

Maximum fines

For most municipal court cases the maximum fine is:

  • Penal violations, $500
  • City ordinances, $500

Requesting a payment extension

If you would like to enter a plea of No Contest or Guilty, you may request a 30-day extension to pay the fine in full.  This request can be made either in person or by sending the Defendant’s Request form to the Clerk’s office, provided you do so on or before the required appearance date assigned to you on your citation.  This form is also available in Spanish.  Only one extension will be allowed.

It is the responsibility of the person who received the citation to call the Clerk’s office at 512-218-5480 to verify the request was received and approved by the Judge.

If a warrant has been issued for your arrest, this court offers a “safe harbor” to turn yourself in on Class C warrants issued by this court.  This court will not allow the arrest or jailing of any person with an outstanding arrest warrant who (1) voluntarily appears before a judge of this court at any of this court’s initial appearance dockets at 9:00 am on Monday or Thursday each week; and (2) makes a good faith effort to resolve the arrest warrant before it is executed (served on the person named in the warrant by a law enforcement official).  In other words, if you have an active Class C misdemeanor warrant issued by this court and you voluntarily appear at one of the court’s initial appearance dockets, you will not be arrested and you will be allowed to speak to a judge and make a good faith effort to resolve the arrest warrant before it is executed.  If the judge determines that you have made a good faith effort to resolve the arrest warrant, the judge will recall the warrant.
