If you have a Vehicle and Traffic matter in court, you are to mail in your plea of either “guilty” or “not guilty”.  If you plead guilty, the judge will assess a fine and/or surcharge; you will then be sent a bill.  If you plead not guilty, you will either be notified by the court for a different return date, or notified  by the town prosecutor.

If you have a Criminal Matter you are to appear on that date, unless otherwise notified by the court.

Remember, the court clerk is a part-time position meaning the clerk is not in the office daily.   You may leave a voice message at (716)652-3320 or email at
