City Court

City and town courts are created by local ordinance. Currently there are forty-seven city courts and twenty-eight town courts in Indiana. The Tipton City Court hears cases involving misdemeanors, such as traffic infractions and city ordinance violations. City and town courts are not courts of record, so appeals from city and town courts go to the circuit or superior courts and are decided as if they have never been to court before.

In Indiana, city court judges are elected to serve four-year terms. Tipton City Court Judge Jack L. Richter has served since November 2009.

Fines and costs are payable as follows:

  • Exact cash is accepted.
  • Cashier’s checks or money orders, payable to “Tipton City Court,” may be mailed or delivered to the City Court at 225 E. Jefferson Street, Tipton, Ind. 46072.
  • Fines also may be paid via telephone with debit and credit cards. (A transaction fee will be applied). Credit cards accepted are Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Telephone payments may be made no later than 2:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
  • A $25 late fee will added to the fine if payment doesn’t arrive by the due date on the ticket.
  • To ask questions about a traffic ticket, please allow seven days from the date the ticket was issued before contacting the Tipton City Court, as information is not available before then.
