City court in Carl Junction could soon be making some changes


CARL JUNCTION, Mo. — City court in Carl Junction could be making some changes – including an increase in court costs.

The municipal court is getting ready to join the statewide Show Me Courts project – tying C.J. To a system based out of Jefferson City.

The City Council will discuss adding a seven dollar fee that’s required by the state as part of the switch.

Launching the program would also require some other upgrades.

Steve Lawver, C.J. City Admin, said, “We’ve had to make sure computer systems are up to a standard that are usable. Because the Show Me court program is actually a online program.”

C.J. City court currently charges $27.50 for court costs – with the proceeds divided between the city and state.
