City announces payment options for individuals with outstanding warrants

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- In preparation for the 2008 Statewide Warrant Roundup, the City’s Municipal Court announced today that individuals who have unpaid fines related to misdemeanor violations such as traffic violations and City ordinance violations will have from now until February 18 to submit payment under a grace period.

This is an effort the City is taking to clear over 249,000 outstanding warrants on more than 122,000 individuals. This number also includes those individuals who reside in the County but have outstanding municipal court warrants from the City of San Antonio.

“Our goal is to give citizens as many opportunities possible to take care of their fines without the fear of being arrested,” said Fred Garcia, Municipal Court Director. “Now is the time to clear one’s record before the warrant roundup begins.”

During this two-week grace period, individuals with outstanding warrants are encouraged to visit the San Antonio Municipal Court at 401 S. Frio from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Fridays.

Individuals do not have to present their original citation; however, the person appearing must be charged with the violation. Payments are accepted by cash, check, credit card or money order. Payments may also be made on the internet at website . Persons wishing to pay a non-traffic warrant or request a payment plan must appear at the Municipal Court.

Individuals who cannot make it downtown to Municipal Court and wish to pay their traffic warrant in full can visit one of the City’s four Community Link Centers to pay their fines. The person charged with the violation must appear at the following Community Link locations:

Las Palmas Center
803 Castroville Rd., Suite
