STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-November 1, 2019-No one likes to receive a ticket, but when it happens, some of us want to pay for it quickly and without a trip to court. The Municipal Court recently unveiled a new online payment portal for traffic and animal tickets that do not require a mandatory court appearance.
“The court has been working toward expanding our online payment process to include more categories,” said Municipal Court Clerk Theresa Lichtenfels. “While we understand the frustration that might come with a citation, we want to make resolving that issue as convenient as possible.”
Citations for animal tickets such as animal-at-large and no license along with certain traffic tickets can now be paid through an online portal. Access is available through the city’s homepage as well as from the Municipal Court department page.
Simply enter your citation/case number and your last name and the online process will start. Online payment requires the fine to be paid in full. Please keep in mind that citations may take up to seven (7) days to be listed on the site.
While most parking/animal tickets can be resolved through this method, certain citations are not eligible for online payment and will be flagged. Flagged citations typically require a mandatory court appearance or additional paperwork required by the court and will not be eligible for online payment. In addition, if you are contesting a ticket or believe the amount due is incorrect, then you may not want to pay online, but should contact the court to seek clarification.
The Steamboat Springs Municipal Court handles traffic cases, municipal code violations, and parking tickets. The court has original jurisdiction over all misdemeanor municipal code and traffic violations occurring within the city limits of the City of Steamboat Springs.
Citations issued by the State Patrol, Routt County Sheriff, as well as some specific Steamboat Springs Police matters, are heard at the Routt County Combined Courts. Your ticket will state where you are to appear.
