Saginaw Municipal Court

The City of Saginaw Municipal Court is to serve its citizens within the community in a professional manner. The court and its officers are dedicated to the principles of fair and impartial justice administered with respect and equality.

Court Appearance
Your initial court appearance date is printed on your citation.  You may appear at the court office or pay your citation online prior to the initial appearance date.  If you fail to appear on your initial appearance date a warrant and an additional charge of failure/violate promise to appear may be issued for your arrest. 


If you feel that you are guilty, or you do not wish to contest the charges alleged against you, a standard fine for the offense may be paid. The court offers a number of convenient payment options. If you feel that you are not guilty of the offense as charged, you must appear before the Municipal Court Judge. If you wish to have a trial before the judge, it is necessary that you request a court date in person, or in writing.

The Municipal Court has original and exclusive jurisdiction over violations of city ordinances within the city limits and has concurrent jurisdiction with justice of the peace courts over Class C misdemeanor criminal cases where the punishment, upon conviction, is by fine only (a maximum of $500). By authorization of the governing body of the city, ordinances relating to fire safety, zoning, public health, and sanitation are subject to a fine only (a maximum of $2,000). This court does not have jurisdiction in most civil cases but does have limited civil jurisdiction in cases that involve owners of dangerous dogs.
