The Pantego Municipal Court is committed to providing quality customer service to all who appear in the court while we diligently execute the administrative responsibilities set forth by law. We promise to be innovative in creating methods and techniques that allow us to be more responsive to the needs of the public. As the local branch of the judicial system, municipal courts come into contact with more defendants than all other Texas courts combined. Therefore, it is our duty to provide fair and impartial justice by promoting the highest standards in customer service, upholding the integrity of the court, and building public trust and confidence. All official correspondence must be through the U.S. Postal Service mail or in person. Note: If the Court is closed due to weather conditions or a holiday, your due date will move to the next business day that the Court offices are open.
