Municipal Court

The Monona Municipal Court and Juvenile Court remain operational with a few changes due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

  • All those appearing in-person will be required to wear a mask and to maintain a 6-foot social distance. Anyone exhibiting symptoms of Coronavirus (fever, cough, shortness of breath) will not be allowed to enter the building.
  • Masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
  • Room capacity maximums will be in place, so attendees and witnesses may be asked to check in with the clerk, then wait outside or in their vehicles until it is their turn to appear. The court will also encourage witnesses to appear by videoconference if available.
  • Payments will not be accepted in the courtroom. Participants have the option to pay via credit card online, mail in their payment, utilize the parking lot payment box or the walk-up window at City Hall.
  • If your ticket does not indicate a mandatory appearance, you may enter a plea in writing. Read here for more information.
