COSTS

Girard Court ePayment

Welcome to the Girard Municipal Court e-payment system. Utilizing this system, you can pay your fines and costs on-line by using a credit card or bank debit card. This system is new to the Girard Municipal Court and therefore you can only pay the fines and costs for limited traffic offenses. In order to make a payment on-line, you must know the total amount you are paying. This can be done by viewing the pay schedule below or contacting the court during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST) at 330-545-3049. One of our Deputy Clerks will be happy to assist you in this matter. If your traffic ticket was marked “Mandatory Appearance” by the officer, you must appear in court and cannot use this system to pay your fines or costs.
