Temporary closure in response to increasing COVID-19 cases

The Unified Government announced today that the Kansas City, Kansas Municipal Court will be closed from December 1, 2020, to January 18, 2021. The closure is part of the County’s ongoing efforts to increase public safety and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

This temporary closure applies to all cases except for Domestic Violence and necessary trials. Hearings that are currently scheduled will be rescheduled for a date after January 18, 2021.

“The decision to close the court to all cases except Domestic Violence and necessary trials was not made lightly,” said Municipal Court Administrator Dominic Geniuk. “This change allows for an immediate decrease of persons entering the building, making the spread of COVID-19 less likely for both the public and our staff remaining in City Hall.”

In spite of the temporary closure, Court Officials emphasize that many interactions with the Court can be conducted online at wycokck.org/Municipal. Through this site, the public can:
  • Download the myWyCo app, through which they can pay municipal court tickets, and set a court date and payment reminders.
