On June 2, the Lee’s Summit Municipal Court converted to the statewide court automation program, known as Justice Information System (JIS). As a result, in approximately three weeks, Lee’s Summit Municipal Court records will be accessible by the public via Case.net: www.courts.mo.gov.
During the period of transition to the new system, on-line payments will not be available for approximately four weeks from June 2, 2014. Citations not requiring a court appearance must be mailed to the court or paid in person. The Court accepts the following forms of payment: cash, credit/debit card, money order, or cashier’s check. Payments by mail may be made by money order or cashier’s check only. Personal checks will not be accepted.
By becoming a part of the statewide court management system, the City’s Municipal Court will be able to:
• utilize a case management system that meets all statutory and Supreme Court rule requirements,
• electronically transfer data to the Missouri Department of Revenue, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the National Crime Information Center,
• receive data backup and system maintenance, and
• participate in the Tax Offset Program and Debit Collection. This allows for the automated collection of court fines and fees.
This will help to improve the Municipal Court’s ability to collect fines, court costs, and restitution and probation fees.
