The amnesty program will be offered until the Warrant Roundup occurs. Defendants who voluntarily appear in the Municipal Court during the amnesty period will be permitted to either pay all outstanding warrants or enter into an agreement with the City for a payment plan on outstanding fines. The City will waive warrant fees for defendants who pay their outstanding warrants in full, which could result in a savings of $50 per warrant. For defendants with multiple cases, this could result in significant savings.
A list of defendants with outstanding warrants is available in the Belton Municipal Court office, 711 E. 2nd Avenue, and is listed on the City’s website: www.beltontexas.gov. Affected persons are urged to contact the Belton Municipal Court during the next two weeks to dispose of their cases voluntarily and avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest at home or work in front of family, friends or co-workers. Fines can be paid in person at the Municipal Court office Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.; credit card payments are accepted over the telephone by calling (254) 933-5838.
For more information regarding this press release, please contact Police Chief Gene Ellis at 254-933-5840 or the Municipal Court at (254) 933-5838.
