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.
Initial appearance court sessions are held on Wednesday evenings, once or twice each month. The Clerk works three days per week, generally Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If nobody is available a voicemail message can be left at the court's phone number.
