Municipal Court

Municipal court is presided over by a judge who is appointed to a three year term by the mayor, with the advise and consent of the township council.

Cases heard in this venue include everything from traffic tickets and drunk driving to barking dogs, harassment, criminal trespassing, assault, terroristic threats, domestic violence, indictable matters and violations of the fish and game and forest and park laws.

Pay your traffic tickets online

Many parking and traffic summonses may be paid at NJMCdirect.com, a payment site maintained by the New Jersey municipal courts. If you have a Visa or MasterCard credit/debit card, use this fast, secure and convenient way to take care of your traffic tickets online. A processing fee, based on the penalty amount of the ticket, will be added to your transaction. Note: Only tickets that are issued for a payable violation and that do not require a court appearance can be paid through NJMCdirect.com.

Community Dispute Resolution Committee (CDRC)

The court has established a Community Dispute Resolution Committee (CDRC) which is made up of citizens who have been specially trained in mediation techniques. Its purpose is to help resolve minor disputes between private citizens. Rather than going through formal court proceedings, the parties appear before the committee and work together to develop an equitable solution. This type of mediation is ideal for neighborhood disputes, business/consumer complaints, simple harassment/trespass, dog/noise complaints, bad checks and landlord/tenant disputes. For more information about the CDRC, please contact the court administrator.
