According to the city news release, Court in the Community will run from 9 a.m.-noon at Northpark YMCA, located at 9100 N. Beach St. in Fort Worth.

Quote of note

“I encourage anyone who has an outstanding citation with the Fort Worth municipal court to contact us immediately so we can provide options to move those cases to a final resolution,” Court Director William Rumuly said. “We are a safe harbor court, meaning we do not arrest persons who come voluntarily to see us on their outstanding cases.”

The news release states that individuals should call 817-392-6700 for more information or to register for the event.
