I got a ticket, so now what?!

Our current City Clerk is Marsha Luna

If you have been given a ticket in the City of Nash, it’s ok, you have a couple of different options!

First, you can pay the fine outright. If you do not have the resources to pay it all at one time, you can sign up for a payment plan which allows you to pay it out over time.

Second, if the offense was a moving violation, you may be eligible for Defensive driving which will allow you to pay a portion of your fine and take a class to keep the offense from going on your record.

And third, if you are unemployed, we also allow community service to be done in order to satisfy the fine for the offense. It is, however, the responsibility of the defendant to find a place that has community service hours available.

If you would like to request a court date to go before the Judge and plead not guilty or ask for leniency, please contact Nash Municipal Court @ 903-838-0822As mentioned above, if you fail to contact the court to make arrangements to resolve your citation by the deadline provided, warrants will be issued for all unresolved traffic tickets!
