Municipal Judge

The municipal judge is elected to preside over the municipal court, a separate and co-equal judicial branch of the village government. The municipal court, one of nearly 240 in Wisconsin, is a trial court with exclusive jurisdiction over alleged violations of village ordinances committed by adults and juveniles. Municipal court decisions (except for default judgments when defendants fail to appear) may be appealed to the circuit court. In addition to presiding over the municipal court, the judge is responsible for court administration, including hiring and supervising staff, and is required to attend continuing education programs presented by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
