Fort Collins Municipal Court issues and processes warrants on misdemeanor cases for failure to appear at hearings or trials, failure to comply with conditions of a suspended fine or jail sentence, and failure to pay assessed fines or costs. If you have a warrant issued out of this Court and wish to address it, you have the following options:

  1. You may appear on any arraignment date (Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays, except for holidays) between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM and speak with the Judge in the courtroom regarding your case.
  2. You may appear during normal business hours at the Municipal Court Clerks’ Office and post a cash bond in the amount listed on your warrant. After posting the bond, your warrant will be cleared and your case will be rescheduled for a Bond Return Hearing date within two weeks.
  3. You may appear during normal business hours at the Municipal Court Clerks’ Office, enter a plea on your case (if applicable), and pay the bond amount. In some circumstances, a payment plan may be arranged.

If you choose options 2 or 3, you must appear in the Municipal Court Clerks’ Office before 4:00 PM. This allows the Clerks time to process the case and clear the warrant before closing that day.  

If you have additional questions, please contact the Fort Collins Municipal Court at 970-221-6800 or by email at Y291cnRAZmNnb3YuY29t for further information.
