Restrictions to preserve Public Health
On June 2nd, 2021, the Miami County Municipal Court acknowledged that Governor Mike DeWine, the World Health Organization and the National Emergency Declared by the President of the United States have rescinded their emergency orders relative to the COVID-19 Pandemic, therefore, the Municipal Court finds that it is in the best interest of the citizenry of this county seeking to use and avail themselves of the criminal justice system of the Miami County Municipal Court, to return the operations of the court, it's offices, and it's facilities to their pre-pandemic state.
The Miami County Municipal Court will begin an Electronic Filing process for specific Civil cases beginning March 25, 2021.
The Miami County Municipal Court is currently working with the Ohio Attorney General's Office with regard to Delinquent Debt Collection. The Court's intent is to certify offender debt and forward that debt to the Attorney General's Office through an agreement.
Credit / Debit Card
The Miami County Municipal Court is pleased to announce that we now accept Credit / Debit Card payments for Restitution, Probation, GPS and SCRAM fees, in addition to Fines, Court Costs and Small Claim payments. Although we are not yet able to accept "On-Line Payments", you can print a form authorizing a credit Card payment and fax it into the Court to satisfy a payment by credit card. When an interface with the Court's Case Management software and the Credit Card Service Provider is complete, on-line payments will then be possible.
The Miami County Municipal is in the process of upgrading the Public Access software that will include the ability for the Common Pleas Court to provide this service for the first time.
Specialized Docket Certification
The Miami County Municipal Drug Court Program has been awarded the Ohio Supreme Court's Specialized Docket Certification. The Adult Drug Court operates as a specialized docket within the court system. Individuals are offered the opportunity to apply for the program if their crimes are the result of actions related to their drug use.
NEW Electronic Tickets - Court Rule 16.4
The Court now permits the use of a traffic ticket that is produced by computer or other electronic means, provided that the ticket conforms to in all substantive respects, including layout and content, to the “Ohio Uniform Traffic Ticket.” (see Court Rules for additional information).
Probation Officer Certification
The Municipal Court Probation Officers now require an Ohio Supreme Court certification. This certification ensures a state wide evidence based practice in changing offender behavior. Officers are further required to be certified in the Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS) in order to provide the evidence based practices to the correct population of offenders.
