Service as a juror is not only a civic duty it is a pillar of our Judicial system.  Your participation in the process insures members of our community receive a fair and impartial trial for matters which may be brought before the Court.  Jurors who report to the Courthouse for service as a juror, whether selected to hear the case or not, receive $30.00 per day of service to cover jury related expenses.  Payments are typically mailed by the City Treasurer within two weeks of the end of the "Term".
