Municipal Court

City of Yuma Municipal Court is held at the Yuma Police Department located at 216 East 3rd Street.  City Court starts at 9:00 AM on the given date.

Everyone has the right to appear and contest any written city citation issued by a Yuma Police Officer or City of Yuma Code Enforcement Officer.  Before your case is discussed with the judge, everyone is read their legal rights as a citizen.  If an Officer “summons” the alleged suspect to City Court that means you are required to appear before the Municipal Judge on the date cited on the ticket.  If an Officer issues a “penalty assessment” that means the alleged suspect has the opportunity to pay the fine BEFORE the court date (paid in full penalty assessments before the court date do not require a court appearance).  Failure to pay or appear may/can lead to a bench warrant signed by the Municipal Judge mandating an arrest and/or could also include a hold on your driving privileges.

If you have questions on your citation or court date, please contact the Municipal Court Clerk at 970-848-5441.
