The Spring Hill Municipal Court handles cases of alleged violations of City ordinances committed within the city limits. The cases usually involved traffic and other minor offenses. The judge hears the cases without a jury.
A person charged with an offense in municipal court may be represented by a lawyer. If the defendant is unable to afford an attorney and there is a possible jail penalty, the court will appoint an attorney for the defendant.
Court is 8:30 a.m. the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Spring Hill Civic Center, 401 N. Madison St., Spring Hill, KS 66083.
Paying Your Citation
Some citations can be paid before your court date at City Hall. The City of Spring Hill accepts cash, check, money order, cashier's check, and most major credit/debit cards.
If you do not pay your citation before your court date, you must come to court. During court dockets, staff are unavailable to answer phone calls about citations and other court matters.
If you did not request a continuance before your court date and do not appear in court, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.
