COVID-19 INFORMATION - MAYOR'S COURT
As COVID-19 cases continue to increase, the Cuyahoga Falls Mayor’s Court is temporarily suspending court hearings as a precaution to protect the public and court personnel. Beginning November 30, 2020, the Mayor’s Court will temporarily suspend court hearings until further notice. During this time, the Clerk’s Office will be open to answer questions by phone. If you have a mandatory appearance scheduled during this temporary suspension of court hearings, you will be contacted by phone to discuss appearance options.
Citations can be paid by waiver using one of the following methods:
- 24-hour no-fee drop box (located in the Police Department lobby)
- U.S. mail
Please check our website for updates as the temporary suspension of court hearings may be extended.
Oftentimes, minor infringements may be handled through the clerk's office alone; however, if a court hearing is requested, one will appear in front of a magistrate. A list of waiverable offenses is available on the Payment Schedule. Pay in-person or online, today.
