A division of the 21st Judicial Circuit Court of St. Louis County, the Florissant Municipal Division is responsible for the processing of all municipal violations.  The Court is administratively operated by the Court Administrator, with the assistance of the Court Clerk staff.

The Judge and Clerk of Court are empowered to collect fines, take oaths, sign and issue subpoenas, establish and operate the Violations Bureau and perform all other duties provided by the Municipal Code, ordinance and state law.


  • The Florissant Municipal Division is located at 4575 Washington Street, Florissant, MO 63033
  • Court is currently held ten times a month. Please call if you need to confirm your court date.
  • Dockets are called on a first-come, first-serve basis. The doors open 1 hour prior to your court time to begin checking in.
  • For the safety of all of those in attendance, all persons are required to pass through a metal detector and are subject to a search prior to entering the court room.
  • If you enter a plea of Not Guilty on your court date, a later date will be set for trial.
  • If you plead guilty at Court and are unable to pay your fine at that time, you can set up an Installment Payment Agreement. You will not be arrested for not having money to pay your fine on your court date.
  • If you do not come to Court when summonsed to do so, a warrant for your arrest may be issued.


The Violations Bureau is established as a convenience to the public.  It is not intended to replace a court appearance for pleas of Not Guilty.  If you believe that you are not guilty of the offense charged, you should appear in court on the date on your summons.

Violations which may be paid outside of court proceedings may be paid in person, online or by mail.   We do not accept checks from anyone other than the defendant.  Our normal business hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.  The Municipal Court Office is closed on weekends and most holidays.  There is a drop box at the main entrance for payments after hours.  We recommend to not put cash in the drop box.
