Hours of Municipal Court are 8:30 Am to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Court is scheduled on Mondays at 5 PM. The Municipal Court is a local court created by State law. Practice and procedures are governed by New Jersey Court Rules. The Municipal Court Judge is responsible for overseeing the administration of the Municipal Court.

Cases heard in Municipal Court are divided into four general categories:

  1. Violations of Motor Vehicle and traffic laws.
  2. Violations of disorderly and petty disorderly persons offenses.
  3. Violations of Fish and Game laws, Parks and Forests, Weights and Measures, SPCA and Boating regulations.
  4. Violations of Municipal Ordinances (local laws).

More serious offenses, known as indictable offenses, are arraigned in Municipal Court but then sent to the County Prosecutor’s Office.

Each municipality appoints its own Municipal Court Judge. An Informational Guide is available in the office.
