Body

In the light of the increased media focus on indigence issues, now is the time for cities across the Lone Star State to reflect and rededicate themselves to the fundamental ideals which make up the proper foundation of local courts in Texas. This proclamation recognizes the important work of The City of El Campo Municipal Court and the selfless people who work tirelessly to administer fair and impartial justice to all our citizens. This is an opportunity for the City Council to demonstrate their recognition of procedural safeguards for all defendants, including indigent defendants, and to show support of the Municipal Court in independently applying all laws in a way that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.

 

The City proclaims the week of November 5th - 9th, 2018, as Municipal Court Week.
