What if I cannot make my scheduled court date?
If you are unable to appear for your scheduled court date, you must notify the clerk’s office in writing no later than 24 hours prior to your scheduled appearance. You may either appear in person at City Hall or fax, mail, or email your request for a continuance.

Failure to notify the court at least 24 hours in advance will result in a warrant being issued for your arrest. If an emergency occurs resulting in a missed court date, documentation of the emergency situation will be required in order to have the court date rescheduled. A Request for Continuance may be found here.
