Change in Municipal Court Services

| Headline

The temporary changes are due to a staffing shortage.

HELENA, Mont. - Effective immediately, the City of Helena Municipal Court will experience a slight change of services this week due to a staffing shortage. The Court is planning to continue operating, but people should expect some disruptions: 

  • Please plan on longer wait times at the Municipal Court counter for payments, questions, and filings. 
  • There may be phone calls that are not answered as promptly as normal. 
  • The Court may have to close over the lunch hour, or possibly at short notice, due to our staffing issue.

Currently, all court hearings are expected to take place as scheduled.

Municipal Court staff appreciate the community’s patience as they work through the unforeseen challenges.
