We are located on the corner of Rev. Abraham Woods Boulevard and 17th Street North. We provide a limited amount of parking. You will need to purchase a token to exit our parking lot. Additional metered parking is available on 17th and 18th streets.

The Municipal Court is comprised of four courts and eight specialized courts: Misdemeanor Court, Presiding Court, Traffic Court and David Barnes’ South Court. Specialized courts are Adult Drug Treatment Court, Environmental Court, Court Referral Program, Gun Court, Domestic Violence Court, Driving While Intoxicated Court (DWI), Veterans Treatment Court, Bilingual Court and Turning Point Court.  See Specialty Courts for more information about each program.
