There will be a partial opening for immediate-need only issues the week of May 11, 2020 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. Please contact the Court office at 303-762-2580or email@example.com if you have an urgent matter you wish to schedule.

- Anyone who is sick, has a fever of 100.4 or more, coughing, is short of breath or has been in recent contact with someone with Covid-19, is not permitted to enter the court area. Accommodations will be made to ensure due process rights to anyone denied entry.
- Persons 65 or over and/or have a compromising health risk factor will have arrangements made to safely handle your case.
- Persons must wash hands/use hand sanitizer before entering the court area.
- All persons will be required to wear a face covering.
- Social distancing requirements of 6 to 10 feet as instructed, are mandated.

A Standing Judicial Order regarding the required conduct of persons accessing the court area has been executed and can be found here.
The Court has also implemented various alternative options for all traffic and parking tickets as well as many other individual tickets of various types. These alternative procedures may require phone or video contact and/or require you to execute and return documents with the court rather than a physical appearance in court. We request ALL DEFENDANTS OR THEIR ATTORNEY call the Court office at 303-762-2580, (if you have not already been in contact with us since our closure), in order to find out which procedures apply to you.
During the closure that began on March 17, 2020, the imposition of all late fees, warrants and collection matters were temporarily suspended. These will resume in full effect beginning June 1, 2020. Contact the court office prior to this date in order to potentially avoid these sanctions.
Due to continued public health concerns, the Englewood Municipal Court strongly encourages anyone with questions to call our office at 303-762-2580 for clarification and options available to them.
