If you have one or more City of Verona citations scheduled for an upcoming court session: We have resumed normal in-person appearances for those who wish to attend.
Plea sheets are available for those who would like to avoid in-person contacts or having to wait in court. A plea sheet provides you with options to handle your ticket in lieu of attending court. Copies are on the counter in front of the courtroom office or may be downloaded from this site at the bottom of this page.
Masks are no longer required, however single-use masks will be available to those wishing to wear one.
You may pay your ticket(s) instead of attending court or completing a plea sheet. Payments may be made on or before the court date shown on your ticket by mailing a check payable to the City of Verona at the above address. You can also pay online at www.govpaynow.com or by phone at 888-604-7888 (Pay Location Code 7870).
IF YOU HAVE AN OWI TICKET:Please email or call the clerk to request an appointment with the prosecutor or attend on your court date. Please do not pay in advance.
All scheduling questions, rescheduling requests, and payment extension requests can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call the clerk, although office hours will be limited.
Pretrials normally involve a face to face meeting between you and the prosecutor. For the time being, there will be no in-person appearances and the prosecutor will attempt to contact each defendant or attorney in an attempt to resolve each matter. The next available pretrial date is in late August. Dates and procedures are subject to change. Check back for updates.
Verona Municipal Court presides over matters that originate when a City of Verona Police Officer issues a citation (ticket) charging a person or entity with violating a traffic law or city ordinance. The city has the burden to prove each violation with evidence that is clear, satisfactory and convincing. The court provides a neutral forum for hearing cases.
Paying Tickets Without Appearing
Just because you received a ticket does not mean you must come to court. Unless the ticket shows "mandatory appearance", you have the option to pay it on or before the court date shown on the ticket. If you do so, your payment will be considered to be a plea of "no contest" and you will be convicted of the law violation shown on the ticket.
The Clerk is currently in the office one or two days each week and otherwise working remotely. If nobody is available you may email the court office or leave a voicemail at the court's phone number.
