Collections

Municipal Court has an internal and external collection process for collecting outstanding fines and fees owed to the court. When a fine is imposed, all defendants are obligated to pay the full amount of the fine and fees. The court does permit payment arrangements for those defendants who are unable to pay the full fine imposed.

Payment plans are authorized based upon review of financial circumstances and payment history. Upon entering into a payment plan with the court, defendants are responsible for keeping said agreement. Failure to comply with the terms and conditions of this agreement will result in further action by the court. Further action may include: contempt complaints, show cause hearings, drivers license suspensions and/or turnover to an external collection agency.

The court has established specific criteria and time lines for submittal of accounts to an external collection agency. Defendants with accounts assigned to an external collection agency must contact and work directly with the collection agency to make payment arrangements. The court will receive notification of account payments from the collection agency each time a payment is received. When the account is paid in full, the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles will be notified for Suspension Clearances. When the court receives the final payment from the external collection agency the case will be closed.
