Pay a Ticket / Fine

How Do I Pay My Fine?

Payment of all fines, costs, fees, and restitution is due and payable in full immediately upon plea of guilty or a finding of guilty.

If you wish to pay a fine before your scheduled court date, you may do so in most cases. Many summonses are payable in advance of court and, if paid, do not require a court appearance.

By paying the fine, you are pleading guilty to the charged offense. Based upon the payment, a conviction would be entered. If the charge is a violation of the Model Traffic Code, a report of the conviction would be made to the Colorado Motor Vehicle Division and points would be assessed on your driver's history. The number of points for each offense should be indicated on the summons.

If the summons states an amount for the fine and surcharge, payments in advance can be made by mail (by check or money order) or in person at the Municipal Court window during business hours.

How Do I Send a Payment?

Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Municipal Court. Payments should be accompanied by the blue copy of the summons. Mail your payment to:
Fort Morgan Municipal Court
901 E. Beaver Ave.
Fort Morgan, CO 80701

The Court will accept payment up until the close of business of the day prior to your court hearing. The Court also accepts payments after hours via the drop box located at the main entrance to the Police Department. If you wish to make payment on the day of court, $25 in court costs will be added to the amount on the face of the summons.

If the summons does not state an amount for a fine, payment in advance of court is not permitted. A court appearance by the defendant is then necessary.
