Mayor’s Court

The Mayor of Yellow Springs, Pam Conine, holds Mayor's Court twice a month in the Council Chambers on the 2nd Floor of the John Bryan Community Center at 100 Dayton St. The Mayor is supported by the Clerk of Courts, Elise Burns. 

The Yellow Springs Mayor's Court hears misdemeanor offenses that occur in the jurisdiction of the Yellow Springs Police Department. Other types of cases heard by the Mayor's Court include, but are not limited to, zoning cases, passing bad checks, assaults, animal-related cases and tax-related cases.
