Delaware County Townships:
Traffic and parking violations from the City of Delaware, the Division of Wildlife, and those transferred from all Mayor’s Courts in the geographic jurisdiction of the Delaware Municipal Court are heard by the Court. In some cases, a person who receives a traffic ticket may plead guilty and pay the fine without coming to Court. This is called “waiving” the ticket. Go to www.municipalcourt.org to find the Court’s waiver procedure and schedule of fines. Persons who wish to plead “not guilty” or “no contest” with an explanation must appear in Court before the Judge.
