ANNOUNCEMENT FROM MARCH 16, 2020

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and "flatten the curve", Judge William Collins has issued an administrative order that will cancel all municipal court dockets in the 17th Circuit through May 31.

The order will take effect on Thursday, April 2.

During that time frame, there are three dockets, April 15, May 6, and May 13, scheduled for Harrisonville Municipal Court.

Those in-person hearing dockets are now canceled. Staff will be reassigning each case to a future docket and will be working to notify attorneys and defendants, by mail summons, of their new court dates.

Defendants who have a Stay of Execution on payment of their fines for the April 15, May 6, or May 13 dockets will still need to make a minimum payment of $100 by that date. Defendants who are unable to make the minimum payment must call the court (816) 380-8903.  A letter will also be mailed to these defendants.

Payments can be made online, over the phone by calling 1-877-222-0377, mailed in or put in the Utilities Drop-Box at City Hall, located on the outside wall at 300 E Pearl Street, (Please clearly mark the envelope "For Court").
