Court Fines & Methods of Payment

For payments of fines and costs, the court clerk can accept cash, credit cards, money orders, and personal checks written on a local bank with your current name, address, and phone number preprinted on the check.  You can also pay online or over the counter in City Court with a credit card.

If you cannot pay all of your fines and costs on the day court is held, you must file a motion with the Clerk for additional time to pay.

Cash Appearance Bond Schedule
Murfreesboro City Court has a cash appearance bond schedule for most violations. You may pay the cash appearance bond before court and avoid the court appearance and court costs.  If there is not an amount placed on the citation by the officer when the ticket is issued, you may call the clerk's office at 615-890-2142.

If you choose to pay your ticket or post a cash appearance bond in person, the City Court Clerk's Office is located at:
City Hall
Room 202
111 W. Vine St.
Murfreesboro. TN 37130

If you choose to answer your citation by appearing in court, please go to the courtroom, room 213, second floor of City Hall.
