Fines & Payment Options

Due Date

The law requires you to make an appearance in your case. Your appearance date is noted on your citation, bond, summons or release papers. You or your attorney may appear in person in open court, by mail or you may deliver your plea in person to the court.

Please note: Juveniles have a separate set of rules for appearances.

Paying a Ticket / Fine

Please contact the Municipal Court at (806) 296-1177 to verify if your citation can be paid without a court appearance.

Types of Payment

The Municipal Court accepts cash, check, money orders and cashier’s checks. We do NOT accept credit card payments over the phone.

Making Full or Partial Payment

You may pay by credit card through our website. If you cannot pay in full, payment options are available for an additional $25 fee. Minimum payments are $50 per month for a citation.

Missing Your Payment Due Date

If you do not pay your fine according to your payment schedule, or if you fail to appear in court as ordered, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
