The Municipal Court Judge works out of the City Hall office on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. These are the only hours that the Judge will be available to meet with defendants who have been cited with a Class "C" charge. The Deputy Court Clerk is available for defendants Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at City Hall.
Pittsburg Municipal Court located at 200 Rusk Street, Pittsburg, TX, handles Class "C" misdemeanors only. Class "C" misdemeanors are punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00. The maximum fine for most municipal court traffic violations is $200.00; for municipal court penal violations - $500.00; for certain city ordinance violations - $2,000.00; and for other city ordinance violations - $500.00.
All other citations will be handled in other courts such as the Justice of Peace or "JP" court (located in the Camp County Courthouse) or the Department of Public Safety "DPS" (located across the street from the courthouse in the Annex building).
After an individual has made their plea, there is a grace period of thirty (30) days in which the fine is to be paid in full, without additional charge.
After 30 days, if the citation has not been paid in full, the State assesses a late fee of $25.00 (considered a payment plan fee).
After the fee has been charged, the individual will come in and pay at least the $25.00 and citation will be set up on 3 monthly payments.
All cases have the possibility of having warrants issued if not paid in full or disposed of in the manner agreed upon by the Judge and/or individual. All cases have the possibility of being reported to DPS for the denial of (or the renewal) of driver's licenses until paid.
