The Justice Court is presided over by the Village Justice who is elected for a period of four years. In the Justice Court all violations of local ordinances and certain provisions of the Vehicle and Traffic Law are tried. The Clerk to the Village Justice prepares monthly reports and sends fines collected to the Village Treasurer. The Clerk to the Village Justice is appointed for a one year term and is responsible for the collection of all fines and maintains court records. The State Comptroller audits the monthly report and bills the Village for monies due to the State. The remaining fine money remains with the Village. There is also an Acting Justice who serves during the absence or inability of the Village Justice.
