Municipal Court

Court Jurisdiction
The Winneconne Municipal Court has jurisdiction and handles non-criminal traffic and ordinance citation cases within the Village of Winneconne, Town of Winneconne and the Town of Vinland. Municipal Courts handle only non-criminal cases, so jail time is never ordered as part of a guilty finding. Jail can be ordered, however, in the event that a defendant fails to pay a previously ordered forfeiture. 

Open Session

All Municipal Court sessions are open to the public, with the exception of cases involving juveniles. If you are interested in observing your court in session, you are welcome to sit in and observe at any time. Court generally is in session one Tuesday per month for initial appearances, and one Wednesday per month for trials. You may contact the court clerk to learn the next court dates. Municipal Court sessions are held in the Village of Winneconne Municipal Center.

Court Etiquette
It is important that you come to court prepared and follow proper court etiquette once you arrive. Plan to arrive a few minutes early. If you are under 18 years of age, you must bring a parent or legal guardian to court with you.
