Payment may be made with check (made out to Town of Ault), money order (made out to Town of Ault), cash or credit/debit card.
If you have an Ault Municipal Court traffic ticket and the penalty assessment portion on the front of your ticket has been filled out, you may plead GUILTY and pay the ticket before your court date. Some tickets have “early settlement” offers. To take advantage of the early settlement (which may include a point reduction), you must pay the ticket within 20 days of the date you received the ticket. If you miss the early settlement option, you may still pay the ticket before the court date without the addition of the $20.00 Court Cost; however, the original points will be assessed against your driving record.
If the penalty assessment portion or early settlement is not filled out (for example, in most motor vehicle accident cases), payment before your court date is not an option because your appearance for arraignment is mandatory.
Municipal Court misdemeanor tickets are mandatory appearances. You must appear on the arraignment date listed on your ticket. To find out additional information, please call the Court Clerk’s Office.
The Ault Municipal Court can take payments with credit card through our online services website at: https://myaultgov.org/courts/search. You will need your citation number (five digit code in the upper right hand corner), and your four digit year of birth - not your birthday - to search for your citation. It can take up to 7 business days for your citation to appear in our online system, so please wait to search for it until it has been one week since the date of violation. You can find the date of violation directly under the citation number, in the upper right hand corner of the citation.
Failure to appear in court may result in a contempt citation or a warrant being issued for your arrest. This may result in additional fines and a judgment against your driver’s license.
IF YOU ARE A JUVENILE, A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WILL NEED TO SIGN THE BACK OF THE SUMMONS AND THE SIGNATURE MUST BE NOTARIZED BEFORE PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED.
MAIL OR TAKE PAYMENT TOGETHER WITH THE SIGNED COPY OF THE SUMMONS TO: AULT MUNICIPAL COURT – 201 FIRST STREET/P.O. BOX 1098, AULT CO 80610.
