Municipal Court

If you are a part of a vulnerable population (i.e. individuals who are over 65 years of age and/or individuals with serious underlying health conditions), you must contact the Court (call 830-997-9935 or in-person) and identify yourself as a vulnerable individual, and the Court will provide reasonable accommodation to you.

The Fredericksburg Municipal Court is responsible for the adjudication of all Class C misdemeanor offenses cited or filed by the Fredericksburg Police Department, which includes offenses under the Transportation Code, Penal Code, Education Code, Health and Safety Code, Alcoholic Beverage Code, and violations of City ordinances.

The judiciary is made up of a Presiding Judge and one Associate Judge. The Judges preside over all initial appearance dockets, show cause dockets, pretrial hearings, bench trials and jury trials. The Judges serve daily as magistrates for individuals arrested by the Fredericksburg Police Department during the week, and additionally perform after-hours and weekend magistrate duties for all Gillespie County law enforcement agencies on a five week rotation basis.

The Municipal Court Clerk serves as the administrative arm of the Municipal Court. The Clerk’s duties include timely and accurate processing of case documents that are filed, responses to requests for information from defendants or members of the public, collection of assessed fines and costs, and efficient docketing of cases.
