Municipal Court Clerk
Dawn Towns, 770-786-7004
Where is Court Held?
In the Community Room of the City Hall building at 110 West Clark Street; Oxford GA 30054.
When is Court Held?
Court is held the third Thursday of each month at 9:30am unless extenuating circumstances exist.
How much is the fine amount related to my citation?
Contact City Hall at 770-786-7004 for the fine amount.
What Type of Payments Do You Accept for Citations?
Payment can be made in the form of cash, money order, or a cashier’s check issued by your bank. We do not accept personal checks for a citation payment. We do not have the ability at this time to process debit or online payments.
How Can I Pay?
There are several methods to pay your citation fine before the day of court. You may…
- Sign the back of your citation, include payment, and mail it to 110 W. Clark Street Oxford, GA 30054.
- Sign the back of your citation, include payment, and leave it in the overnight drop-box located in the main entrance driveway.
- Appear in person at City Hall with payment.
I Want to Pay My Citation Fine Rather Than Appear in Court; What Is the Time Frame for Payment?
Payment must be received no later than 5:00pm on the day prior to your court date. If you procrastinate until the day of your scheduled appearance, you must appear at 9:30am; we will not accept payment prior to court on the morning court is scheduled.
Can I Reschedule My Court Date?
If an extenuating situation exists, you must call 770-786-7004 and speak with the Court Clerk to determine if your court date can be rescheduled. Because the City of Oxford only holds court once a month, cases are only rescheduled for extreme circumstances.
What Happens If I Miss My Court Date?
A $100.00 contempt fee will be added to your citation amount and/or a warrant will be issued for your arrest, along with the possibility of license suspension. If you have missed your court date, contact the Court Clerk to discuss your options.
I Would Like to Speak With the Judge or Solicitor; How May I Do So?
Neither the judge nor the solicitor will discuss a case before your court date, so you must appear in court at your scheduled time to meet with them.
