Annual Survey

We are asking you to complete the Municipal Court User Survey to help us evaluate the services you received and identify areas in need of improvement. By completing this survey your valuable input will help guide us in making more service improvements that reflect the needs of our community. Your suggestions and comments will help us plan long‐term changes as we strive to assist the public in accessing and understanding the judicial process.  At the completion of the survey process all data is compiled and reviewed by judges and court staff to determine what changes can be made to improve service delivery in the coming year.  We will use the information you provide to make changes that really count.

General Information


The Eugene Municipal Court was established by City Charter to adjudicate violations of the City's municipal laws occurring within the city limits.

The City of Eugene has also adopted the Oregon State Vehicle Code by ordinance, which gives the Eugene Municipal Court jurisdiction over these offenses within the City.

All Eugene Municipal Court proceedings are governed by State of Oregon laws governing justice courts. Keeping in mind the unique nature of the Eugene community, the Eugene Municipal Court offers fair and reasonable adjudication of cases and, where appropriate, the imposition of sanctions.

Court sanctions may include fines, time in jail, community service, road / work crew, diversion / probation, or other alternative programs, depending upon the severity of the offense and the defendant's history with the court.
