If a person receives a citation and does not respond by appearing in court or paying the fine, a warrant can be issued for the person's arrest by the county sheriff.
If you know that a tag has been issued for a violation and want to know the status of your complaint, call the City department involved. However, if the violation is in the criminal justice system, the City department may not be able to tell you its status.
There is no requirement that the courts inform a complainant about the status or disposition of a misdemeanor violation. However, the Housing Court office has a computer terminal which may be viewed by the public for final dispositions of orders, etc. For information call (651) 266-8236 or go to Room 150 City Hall/Court House Building.Return to Resident Handbook
