We are an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of New Jersey.
Municipal Court is considered a court of limited jurisdiction. The court handles motor vehicle and traffic violations, disorderly persons offenses, violations of municipal ordinances, other non-indictable offenses not within exclusive control of Superior Court, penalty enforcement, complementary methods of dispute resolution, and all other proceedings in which jurisdiction is granted by statute.
Required to accomplish our mission are four paramount values representing the core of what we stand for as an organization:
- Quality Service
Court Session Information
Court is held on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. Beginning June 1, 2021, a second session will be added at 1:00 p.m.
If you need the service of an interpreter, please notify the municipal court administrator prior to your court appearance.
Americans with Disabilities Act
Please advise the municipal court office in advance if you require an ADA accommodation.
Mediation is a confidential, structured, non-adversarial process that allows a neutral third party to assist disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution. The mediation process can be a less expensive, informal, and more meaningful alternative than the traditional trial process. This is because of the efforts of trained volunteers and the resolution being decided by the participants. The court will refer appropriate cases to mediation.
