The Municipal Court is the judicial branch of the City of Austin. It administers justice in a fair, efficient, and timely manner. Court services are increasingly available online, by telephone, email, and through the mail which contributes to compliance in a customer service and eco-friendly way.

The courts adjudicate Class C misdemeanor cases most of which are criminal, including traffic, city ordinance, state code, juvenile, and disabled parking. Camera at Red Light violation are civil (non-criminal) cases as are most parking violations. The four court divisions are Judiciary, Court Operations, Support Services, and the Downtown Austin Community Court (DACC).  The court is made up of more than 160 employees.
