Court Calendar & Dress Code

The City of Wells Court Calendar

The Courthouse is open once a month; the judge will only see the individuals on the docket for the court date. Each citation will receive a summons to come to a pretrial hearing. If you receive a summons you are required to attend the hearing regardless of your pleas. Paying your citation or setting up an arrangement with the court will make you exempt from coming to court. 

Except for official holidays and during declared disasters/emergency situations.

The Municipal Court clerk is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You may contact the court to set up an agreement to take care of your citation.
