Macon-Bibb County has established this website to provide citizens with information concerning parking regulations and the payment of tickets/citations.  An overtime parking ticket must be paid within 20 days of issuance to avoid additional fees.

Some tickets/citations may not be paid without first appearing in court before a judge.  In Appendix III, Part I: Schedule of fines of Municipal Court’s website, you can look up those tickets/citations for which defendants must appear in court before they may pay their fines.  Such “must appear” tickets/citations are not payable either online or by phone.

 


Organizational structure

The mission of Municipal Court of Macon-Bibb County is divided into two sections: judicial and administrative. The judicial section consists of one full-time and two part-time judges.  They are as follows: Chief Judge J. Robert Faulkner; and part-time judges Judge Kathryn W. Gerhardt and Judge Robert E. Herndon.  The administrative section of the Court has thirteen employees, headed by LaTonya Slaughter, Director of the Court.  Administrative court personnel are organized in two divisions: court operations and data entry.  The court operations division, headed by Shemeka Williams, Assistant Court Director/Operations, directly supports the judges in the courtroom and receives payments for court fines and arrest warrants.  The data entry division, managed by Natalie Callaway, Assistant Court Director/Data Entry, ensures entering citations into the court’s computerized database and prepares the court calendar.

1. About Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court

Article VII of Macon’s city charter established Municipal Court as the judicial branch of our government.   House Bill 1171 enacted by the General Assembly of Georgia consolidated the governments of the City of Macon and Bibb County, effective of January 01, 2014.  Section 7(f) of HB 1171 declares that “on the effective date of this charter, the operations and employees of the Municipal Court of the City of Macon shall continue its operations without interruptions resulting from the adoption of this charter.  The employees of such court shall become employees of the restructured government of Macon-Bibb County.  The court shall be known as the Municipal Court of Macon-Bibb County.. .. Such court shall have jurisdiction over all traffic offenses and code violations occurring in Macon-Bibb County.”

Cases filed in Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court are for violations of certain misdemeanor state law offenses and violations of city-county ordinances, environmental violations, traffic violations, and parking violations.

Court location

Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court is housed on the first floor of the Government Center (formerly City Hall) at 700 Poplar Street. Access to the Court is through the glass entrance double door on the First Street side of the Government Center. That door is the nearest to the Poplar Street – First Street corner of the Government Center. Municipal Court is expected to re-locate to the Bibb County Courthouse on the corner of Mulberry and First Streets eventually.  Before entering the courtroom, everyone must pass through a metal detector to ensure that no one carries any weapons.

Proper Courtroom Demeanor

In spite of the fact that the Municipal Court is a Court of Common Pleas, certain minimum standards are necessary. All Defendants, officers, spectators, and witnesses are expected to maintain silence during the sessions. In the event excessive noise is created, the bailiff shall warn the person to conform to proper conduct. Failure to obey can result in ejection from the Courtroom, and in extreme cases, charges of contempt of Court may be preferred.

Law enforcement officers should keep talking to a minimum. In the event it is necessary to converse with the City Attorney, the Defendant or his or her attorney, please step outside of the Courtroom and let the bailiff know where you are. Officers should set all radios and pagers to a setting so as not to interrupt the proceedings. If an officer is in civilian dress, please dress in a manner respectful of the Court.

There is a dress code for all persons coming into the court, including judges, attorneys, witnesses, parties to the case, or even just casual observers of the proceedings. No provocative clothing such as halter tops or tank tops are allowed to be worn by either males or females. Generally, no clothing items with writing or printing or cartoons or caricatures or the like printed on them are allowed; this does not prohibit a shirt with a small logo such as the Nike “Swoosh” or a “polo” player or uniforms bearing the small “over the pocket” names of the employer and the employee. Caps or hats may not be worn in the Courtroom. No shorts are permitted, no matter how “dressy” they might be, and no athletic jerseys or items of clothing resembling athletic uniforms of any type are permitted. All pants or trousers must be pulled up to the waist level. Clothing which allows for underwear of any type to be visible is not permitted, and the wearing of any clothing in such a manner that the underwear is visible is not permitted. Dress or skirt lengths should be such as modesty permits.

Solicitor

The Solicitor General of Macon-Bibb County is charged with handling prosecutions in the Court.  All motions and attempts at negotiations should be addressed to her/him.

Court Reporters

All regular sessions of the Court are recorded by electronic means only. In the event a party desires a transcript of a proceeding, it shall be the party’s responsibility to make arrangement with a private court reporter to appear and make the transcript. In the event a party wishes access to the electronic recordings, arrangements can be made through the Clerk of the Court. Those electronic recordings will be available for at least 90 days after the hearing. Should a judge, party or witness desire the recording to be preserved beyond 90 days, they should contact the Clerk of the Court. The electronic recordings are not maintained to be any more than a reference. The quality of the recordings are not always as clear as might be desirable.

Schedule of fines

The following printed fine schedule may be superseded by changes that may not have been entered onto the website. That fee schedule quoted by court personnel at the time of inquiry shall be in full force. If it differs from the fine schedule printed here, it means that this printed fine schedule has not yet been revised to reflect the changes.

Fine amounts for violations listed below include not only base fines but also state-mandated add-ons or surcharges for beneficiary funds. Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court is statutorily mandated to collect these fees and transmit them to the State of Georgia. These funds range from 5% to 50% of the base fine amounts. Examples of such add-on beneficiary funds are the following: drug abuse treatment and education fund, county jail fund, police officers’ annuity and benefit fund, peace officer, prosecutor, and indigent defense fund, and local victims’ assistance fund.

Payment of fines

There are some cases that, to protect you, we require you to appear in court.  Typically these are cases where your license may be suspended or where the fine amount is based on the facts of the case.  Fines listed as payable outside of court can be paid in person or by computer by logging in to: https://prodpci.etimspayments.com/pbw/include/macon/input.jsp.  

You can pay fines, both those imposed in court and those printed on the schedule of fines, by cash, money order, certified check, and credit card (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover Card). If you pay by certified check or money order, make it payable to MACON-BIBB MUNICIPAL COURT. You can pay in person during the Court’s business hours. Do not send cash payment by mail. Escalating overtime parking fine

The fine for overtime parking is $10.00. “The fee for any overtime parking ticket not paid within twenty (20) days from the date it is issued shall be increased to thirty dollars ($30).”

Pursuant to Georgia Code 17-6-11, if you have been issued a court summons and fail to appear to answer to the charge, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.  In addition, a notice is sent to the Department of Driver’s Services for any failure to appear on a traffic violation, and this will result in suspension of your driving privileges.

3, Part III: Escalating overtime parking fine

The fine for overtime parking is $10.00. “The fee for any overtime parking ticket not paid within twenty (20) days from the date it is issued shall be increased to thirty dollars ($30).” [Macon City Code, Section 21-85(b)]

Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court Judge

Robert Faulkner

Judge Robert Faulkner has has served as Judge of Macon’s Municipal Court since 1989. Originally appointed as a fill-in adjunct judge by Mayor Lee Robinson, he has served Macon during the administration of six mayors; during that time, he has also sat as the pro-tem judge of the State Court of Bibb County.

Born in Albany, GA, Judge Faulkner has been a resident of Macon for approximately 60 years. He is a graduate of Lanier High School in Macon and earned a B.A. in Business from Mercer University in 1980 and his law degree from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law.

After law school, Judge Faulkner practiced at Phillips & Faulkner until forming Faulkner & Russell, P.C. in 1988. Areas of focus for his practices included real estate title and closings, real property transfers, loan closings, and bankruptcy cases for creditors. They represented HUD, the VA, FHA, and every major lender and many small lenders in the Middle Georgia area. Judge Faulkner handled cases in state and federal court ranging from misdemeanor traffic pleas to death penalty trials, and he was a panel defense attorney for the Macon Judicial Circuit and U.S. District Court, Middle District of Georgia.

Judge Faulkner has been married to Lynn Chapman Faulkner for forty-two years, and they have two daughters, Kelley, age 30, and Lauren, age 25. His father, Jimmy Faulkner, age 87, lives at home with him and his wife. His mother, Jackie Faulkner, is deceased.

LaTonya Slaughter, Chief Clerk of Municipal Court

LaTonya Slaughter has been named Macon-Bibb County’s Chief Clerk of Municipal Court after serving as the Assistant Clerk over the Operations Division of the Court since 2003. Previous to that she was Deputy Clerk for Municipal Court and Quality Control for M&S Cleaning Service for almost four years.  Mrs. Slaughter holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Management from Brewton Parker College.

During her time in Municipal Court, she has implements a courtroom process to that minimized customers’ wait time during their court experience, and participated on the committee to select and implement a new court case management system for all courts. As Deputy Clerk, she assisted solicitors, attorneys, and Sheriff Deputies with case reductions, violation adjustments, course completions, license suspensions releases, and court case rescheduling. She was also responsible for many of the day-to-day activities of the office and the interaction of staff with the public.

The Macon-Bibb County Municipal Court is divided into two sections: judicial and administrative. The judicial section includes Judge J. Robert Faulkner, the single full-time judge, and two part-time judges, Kathryn W. Gerhardt and Robert E. Herndon. The administrative section of the Court has eight employees organized into two divisions: court operations and data entry. The court operations division directly supports the judges in the courtroom and receives payments for court fines and arrest warrants.  The data entry division ensures entering citations into the court’s computerized database and prepares the court calendar.

Municipal Court Waives Additional Fees in February, March

In February and March, Macon-Bibb County’s Municipal Court will waive penalties and additional fees on unpaid, overdue citations. If a person will come to first floor of Government Center at 700 Poplar Street and pay the entire initial fine, any fees added due to not appearing in court will be waived. This initiative was last used in December 2013, resulting in 153 unpaid and overdue citations being paid. On each of those tickets, the additional $140 fee was waived.

“This is a win, win for the court to minimize its backlog and for the citizens to save money on paying fines, to re-instate their licenses, and to relieve themselves of potential warrants being issued for their arrest,” says Municipal Court Director Terry Bizzell.

For example, if someone has a $161 speeding fine but missed their court date, a “failure to appear” would appear on their record and an additional $140 added. In February and March, if that person comes to Municipal Court and pays the original fine in full, the additional fee will be waived. A letter will be provided for the Department of Driver’s Services in case that “failure to appear” citation has caused their license to be suspended.

Fines can be paid between 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday using cash, cashier’s check, money order, and debit and credit cards. This waiver of additional fees will only be applicable to people paying the initial fine in full during these two months. The initial fees and any additional fines will again be owed beginning April 1, 2015.

For questions about this initiative call 478-751-7154.
