All appearances and actions taken by the judge are arranged by the court staff. Payments of fines and bonds are processed and the collections are balanced daily. Reports are sent to accounting for updating to the general ledger. Monthly reports are processed which include monthly Judicial and Conviction state reports. Deferred adjudication, defensive driving, trial by judge and trial by jury are documented and maintained. The municipal court unit works closely with the Police Department to coordinate operations.
