The Municipal Court has original jurisdiction over all motor vehicle matters, disorderly person complaints, fish and game violations, weights and measure complaints as well as local ordinance violations. Domestic violence matters and restraining orders often are initiated in the Municipal Court, where the Judge is on call 24 hours a day.
Many motor vehicle violations, unless serious, can be paid directly through the Municipal Court Violations Bureau at Town Hall located at 65 Main Street or online at NJMCDirect, the New Jersey Municipal Courts website.
