Through the authority of the Colorado State Statutes and the city home rule charter, the Steamboat Springs Municipal Court has jurisdiction over alleged misdemeanor municipal code and traffic violations within the city limits.
Certain charges require a court appearance, while others may be resolved by simply paying a fine. The Municipal Court is a court of record and court employees are not permitted to provide legal advice. However, they are happy to answer procedural questions.
