Notes on making Municipal Court Payments:

Before getting started you will need your ticket to verify information.  Begin by turning your ticket over to verify that it is payable to:     

Ottawa Municipal Court

715 W. 2nd Street

Ottawa, Kansas 66067

The Franklin County Sheriff Department and the Kansas Highway Patrol also issue tickets in the Ottawa City Limits, but they are filed with the District Court at 3rd and Main.

            If you have more than one offense listed on your ticket and if any of them indicate that a court appearance is required STOP you may NOT pay on line!  Please be aware that not all violations may be paid on line, some will require a court appearance or payment must be made to the Municipal Court Clerk as additional paperwork will be required.  If you believe the amount due on your case is incorrect, please contact the court prior to submitting your payment.  REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED.  Be aware that pleading and paying online may constitute a conviction being reported to the DMV.  Partial payments will not be accepted. 


You may NOT want to pay online if any of the following apply: 

  • If you desire to keep a violation off your driving record.
