Community Dispute Resolution Program (Mediation)
A criminal complaint for a less serious violation, signed by a private citizen, can result in a court hearing. The judge may advise the complainant and defendant to try and resolve the matter through mediation. In such a case, a mediation session will be set up with 2 mediators, complainant and defendant. If successful, upon a mutual agreement, the complaint can be dismissed with a signed agreement between both parties. If an agreement is not reached, both parties will be scheduled for a trial in the Municipal Court with the judge.

Court is held the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 5:00 PM. No Court will be held on Legal holidays.
