One of the goals of the Maryland Heights Municipal Court is to help you resolve your tickets and charges. To make this process more convenient and less burdensome for those we service, the City's municipal judge, Kevin R. Kelly, has established a violations bureau to which designated moving, non-moving and ordinance offenses may be paid without a court appearance.
Pursuant to the Ordinances of the City of Maryland Heights, and the Statutes of the State of Missouri, specifically Section 479.050, Revised, and Rule 37.49 of the Supreme Court Rules of the State of Missouri, the undersigned Municipal Judge of the City of Maryland Heights, hereby orders that the following designated offenses shall be payable to the City of Maryland Heights Violation Bureau. No court appearance is necessary unless specifically excepted as hereafter set forth:
