The Mayor’s Court is imperative to an efficient Ohio court system, as it provides the ability to prevent minor offenses from reaching courts with significant caseloads. Waynesville Mayor’s Court is one of seven operating in Warren County and one of over 300 throughout the State of Ohio. Mayor’s Courts have the authority to hear cases involving traffic and criminal offenses in alleged violation of local ordinances and state traffic laws.
The State of Ohio requires you maintain insurance on the vehicle you are driving. If you did not provide proof of insurance at the time of your traffic offense, you must bring it with you to your court appearance or mail a copy with your payment. It must be valid for the date of your offense. All traffic convictions are reported to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
If you do not respond or appear for your case in court, a bench warrant and/or license forfeiture may be issued.
Court personnel include:
Magistrate Wm. Robert Kaufman: Mr. Kaufman began his service as magistrate for the Village of Waynesville Mayor’s Court January 2020. Mr. Kaufman has 15 years of experience as a mayor’s court magistrate and is also the magistrate at Warren County Court.
