The City of Montrose Municipal Court is the judicial component of the three branches of Montrose city government. The City Council appoints the Municipal Judge and Alternate Judge.
All court sessions are open to the public and are held every Thursday in the City Council Chambers located on the second floor of the Elks Civic Building. The current Municipal Court docket provides a list of cases that are to be heard during the next court session. The court docket is updated on Monday of each week, except on city-observed holidays.
Municipal Court staff are not permitted to provide legal advice, however, they are happy to assist with procedural questions. Please seek legal advice from an attorney.
