It is through the Municipal Courts that citizens in the State of New Jersey come into contact with the judicial system, either as a defendant, a victim, or a witness. Since most citizens never appear before another court, it is from their experience in the Municipal Courts that most people base their conclusions about the quality of justice in New Jersey.
The Municipal Courts are considered courts of limited jurisdiction, having responsibility for:
Fish and game violations
Minor criminal-type offenses (for example, simple assault, bad checks)
Motor vehicle offenses
Municipal ordinance offenses (such as dog barking or building code violations)
A Municipal Court usually has jurisdiction over only cases that occur within the boundaries of its municipality
NO PARKING REGULATIONS
Parking is prohibited on all borough streets between the hours of 2am -5am except on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Parking is prohibited at ALL TIMES when streets are snow covered. Please contact the court for more details.
