Q:  Where do I pay my fine?
 
A: 
If you are mailing the forfeiture, the address is Brodhead Municipal Court, PO Box 168, Brodhead, WI 53520. If you are paying in person you can go to the Police Department, 24 hours per day or you can go to City Hall Monday thru Friday from 8 AM to 4:30 PM and you should have a copy of what you owe as the Police Department records are not connected with the Brodhead Municipal Court, so they will not know your fine amount or balance due.  If you are paying in cash you must have the correct amount.   You may pay with a Wisconsin check, but if you have had citations for Worthless Checks you have to pay by Money Order, Cashiers Check, Cash or Credit/Debit Card. If you are suspended and are paying your fine to get your license reinstated you MUST PAY WITH MONEY ORDER, CASHIERS CHECK, CASH OR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD.

I have now downloaded "Links" to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for easier reference on certain subjects. If you would like to see other Links, please contact me. Linda Faessler, Court Clerk.

Q:  When am I considered an adult?
 
A: 
Any Ordinance violation involving a subject age 17 and over is considered an adult except for the charges of Truancy, Tobacco Violation and Curfew.
Any Traffic violation involving a person age 16 and over is considered an adult.

Q:  If I have more than one fine to pay can I decide which one to pay first?
 
A: 
When you have more than one fine to pay or any restitution to pay on a certain case, any money you pay will be applied to the restitution first and then the oldest fine 2nd.

Q:  Do I have to appear in court?
 
A: 
No, only if your violation is marked as a MANDATORY APPEARANCE, which should be marked on your citation or if there is restitution involved or Damage to Property, or Worthless Checks.

Q:  What happens if it is "Mandatory" and I do not appear?
 
A: 
You could be found guilty by default and/or the Judge can issue a Warrant for your arrest and jailing until he can see you.

Q:  What happens if it is not mandatory and I don't appear?
 
A: 
You will be found Guilty by default and by STATUTE you have 60 days to pay the forfeiture.

Q:  How do I go about paying my forfeiture before my court date?
 
A: 
You can pay your forfeiture by check (WI check only) or cash or money order or Credit/Debit card 24 hours at the Brodhead Police Department at 1004 W. Exchange St. in Brodhead or pay online, or mail it to Brodhead Municipal Court at PO Box 168, Brodhead, WI 53520. You will only get a receipt if you include a self-addressed stamped envelope. If you have posted a cash deposit and fail to appear in Court, the cash bond would be applied towards your forfeiture.

Q:  If I am already suspended for failure to pay a forfeiture what do I do to get my license back?
 
A: 
You have to pay the forfeiture at the agency you were suspended at. You have to get a receipt showing the forfeiture is paid in full. MAKE SURE THE CITATION NUMBER IS ON THE RECEIPT.  You then take that to a DOT center and get reinstated. There is a reinstatement fee you have to pay before you get your license back. It is NOT IMMEDIATE REINSTATEMENT OF YOUR LICENSE when you pay your forfeiture. If you don't have a receipt or cannot find it,  once the Court sends the payment information to Department Of Transportation you can go online  at Wisconsin Department of Transportation to pay your reinstatement fee online.

Q:  The arresting officer did not read me my Miranda rights?
 
A: 
The Miranda Warning are only required to be read to a person who is being arrested for a CRIME. Municipal Courts do not hear CRIMINAL violations.
 
Q:  I can't find the answer to my question in this section
  A: You may call the Municipal Court phone number (608) 897-4176 and leave a message and I will get back to you.
