It is important that you call the Clerk's office, (330-652-5863), between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. the day before your scheduled appearance to confirm that the trial is going forward. If the trial is scheduled on a Monday, please call on Friday.


The fee is $45.00 for each violation. Checks are not accepted.
