Municipal Court

In-person court appearances through May 31, 2021 will be replaced by several alternatives. Read more information here.


Welcome to the Pleasant Prairie Municipal Court, a community-based justice alternative. The Court belongs to you, the people. I am honored to have been elected to preside over it.

The Municipal Court has exclusive jurisdiction over all alleged violations of village ordinances such as traffic offenses (including first offense operating under the influence), zoning violations and certain noncriminal violations that parallel the Criminal Code (such as retail theft or disorderly conduct) whether committed by adults or juveniles. Except for juvenile hearings, all court proceedings are open to the public and you are encouraged to attend.

Hopefully the answers to the “frequently asked questions” posted here are helpful. If not, please feel free to contact us (but note that we cannot give legal advice). And please remember the most important thing: DO NOT IGNORE YOUR CITATION! The WORST thing you can do is ignore a citation or fail to make a scheduled court appearance. If you can’t afford to pay a ticket you should come to court as scheduled and we will try to work with you.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
