NOTICE: The City of Carrollton’s Municipal Court online payment system is temporarily unavailable. The City is actively monitoring the situation with the payment software vendor, who is working through the issue.

Municipal Court payments are still accepted in person, by mail, or through Court's interactive phone payment system. This does not affect the DUE DATE on your citation or your PAYMENT DUE DATE if you have one. Water bill payments are unaffected.

 DALLAS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT passed an Ordinance effective June 19, 2020, requiring all businesses to mandate face masks be worn by workers and patrons while inside the business. Per this new law:

Parties with scheduled in-court appearances are asked to not bring additional persons with them to court unless needed for physical assistance.  Additional persons not needed for physical assistance will be asked to remain outside the court building.

Jury trials will not resume until further direction is received from the Office of Court Administration.

  • Public service windows to pay court fines or to discuss options are open to the public.
  • Court patrons are still encouraged to use the online payment service by visiting or utilizing the automated kiosk outside the Municipal Court building (2001 E. Jackson Road) if they choose to simply pay their fine. The kiosk accepts cash or credit cards.  Defendants may mail in requests for a Drivers Safety Course or Deferred Disposition, if they qualify for these options.

Court staff will be wearing face masks and will enforce social distancing inside the building.
