The Ottawa County Municipal Court Payment Extension Plan gives defendants the opportunity to make interest-free payments to the Court when the balance is not able to be paid in full at the time of sentencing.
Failure to appear in Court for a scheduled hearing is contempt of Court and a bench warrant may be issued. Contempt is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.00. Driving privileges may also be cancelled through the BMV.
*Only applicable to finished cases where a signed agreement is on file with the Court. Full payment is required if you wish to waive a ticket in lieu of appearing in Court. See the Waiver Schedule for amounts.
