Municipal Court

At this time, we are asking that residents needing to do business with the town please courteously do so from home, either by phone, or online. Please visit our Town Services COVID-19 web page. Many town services (including court services) can be done remotely instead of in-person. If you do not find the assistance you need on that page, please give us a call prior to coming to town hall, at 520-822-8800 (main line) or 520-344-7150 (courts), so that we may first see if there is a way to assist you without you needing to visit town hall. We thank you for your kindness and consideration for public health in your community.
