Telluride Municipal Court

Courthouse by Amy Levek

The Municipal Court is responsible for the judicial processing of citations that originate from Telluride Municipal Code violations occurring within Town of Telluride limits.

Telluride Municipal Court sessions are held in the historic San Miguel County Courthouse; 305 West Colorado Avenue, 2nd Floor, Telluride. The Municipal Court Clerk’s office however, is located in Telluride’s Town Hall.

The municipal court judge is only available during court sessions. If you wish to speak with the judge concerning your case, you must appear in court. Any contact with a judge or by a judge concerning the merits of a pending case or proceeding, outside the presence of all parties or their representatives, is considered impermissible “ex parte” communication.

The municipal court clerk is available at Town Hall and may be contacted for questions relating to your hearing date, citation or parking ticket.
