Municipal Court

Municipal Court Week: November 5-9


Whether it is referred to as drunk driving, driving while intoxicated (DWI), or driving under the influence (DUI), impaired driving means a person’s ability to safely operate a moving vehicle is compromised by alcohol and/or other drugs that change the function of the brain and body.

Municipal Court Week – November 5-9, 2018 – is dedicated to appreciating the contributions that Texas municipal courts make to the safety and well-being of our communities. Stop by City Hall during business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday) to try on Impaired Driving Goggles or pick up free traffic safety materials!

You may appear in person at the Municipal Court Offices (located in the main hall of the Municipal Building (City Hall) at 405 Municipal Dr., Kennedale, Texas 76060), between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You will not be subject to arrest if you have active warrants but are taking steps to resolve them in a civil manner. Our goal is to help you; not put you in jail. There are clerks available if you have questions about how to handle your citation. However, staff cannot provide legal advice.

Payment must be in the form of credit card (6.5% transaction fee), cash, cashier’s check, money order. No personal checks will be accepted for payments of warrants. We urge you to contact the court if you are unable to pay the amount owed without undue hardship to yourself or your dependents. You may request a hearing before a judge to consider your ability to pay and request any non-monetary compliance options available to you. You should be prepared to explain and document your financial situation to the court.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the court office at 817-985-2140.

As the local branch of the judicial system, municipal courts come into contact with more defendants than all other Texas courts combined. Therefore, it is our duty to provide fair and impartial justice by promoting the highest standards in customer service, upholding the integrity of the court, and building public trust and confidence.
