Municipal Court
Jurisdiction of the Municipal Court
The Municipal Court has original and exclusive jurisdiction over violations of City Ordinances and, within the city limits, has concurrent jurisdiction with justice of the peace courts over Class C misdemeanor criminal cases where the punishment, upon convictions, is by fine only (maximum fine $500). By authorization of the governing body of the city, ordinances relation to fire safety, zoning, public health, and sanitation are subject to fine only (maximum fine $2,000). This court does not have jurisdiction in most civil cases but does have limited civil jurisdiction in cases that involve owners of dangerous dogs.

Responsibilities
The Roanoke Municipal Court is responsible for processing Class C Misdemeanor charges issued on persons within the city limits of Roanoke. The court also maintains all records of the court, collects fines and fees, sets trial dockets, and prepares warrants.

Contacting the Court

Please allow two to three business days for the court to file and process your citation before contacting the Roanoke Municipal Court.

You may have options to handle your citation through the mail or online. Please contact the Roanoke Municipal Court to verify your options after reviewing the court information. If you are a juvenile, please see the juveniles section.
