Parking Violation Notice tickets are issued by law enforcement, not by the Municipal Court. The court serves as a collection agency for parking violation fine payments.
You can avoid a court appearance by paying your fine before your scheduled court day.
Questions about the issuance of a ticket should be directed to the issuing agency, or a description of the violation may be found in the City of Cape Girardeau's Code of Ordinances, Chapter 26 Article VI - Stopping, Standing and Parking.
If you do not pay the ticket by the court appearance date on the ticket, then you must appear in court. Parking tickets paid within the first 30 days from the date of issuance are $35.50. After 30 days the fine and costs total $76.50.
This does not include handicapped Parking Violations
WARNING: A warrant could be issued for your arrest or a
suspension of your driver license could occur IF you fail to appear in
court OR your payment has not been received by your scheduled appearance
date. Please contact the court if you need to reschedule a court
appearance by calling 573-339-6323 (emails not accepted).
