Municipal Court

The Purpose & Mission

The Court is the Judicial Branch of City Government and is a qualified division of the Circuit Court of St. Charles County. The Municipal Court adjudicates traffic and other ordinance violations primarily filed by the Lake Saint Louis Police Department and Code Enforcement Officer. The mission of The Municipal Court is to treat the citizens who appear in a timely, courteous and efficient manner and assure them of a fair and impartial disposition of their case(s).
