Social distancing and the wearing of masks are encouraged while in the court house. To limit the possibility of having the court ask the general public to wait outside while we are at our fifty people capacity, the court continues to encourage electronic payments and filings.

Paper payments (i.e. cash, check, cashier’s check, money order) can be made by dropping them in the Justice Court drop box. The drop box is located inside the Sheriff’s office lobby. Cash payments must be made in exact change. Place your payment in the small, manila envelopes located on the front of the box. Make sure to clearly write your information (name of the person the payment is for, your name if you are making someone else’s payment, your address and your phone number) on the front of the envelope before dropping it in the box.
