The Municipal Court is responsible for traffic offenses, minor crimes and civil offenses that occur within the City borders. These include motor vehicle and parking tickets, municipal ordinance offenses (such as dog barking or building code violations) and other offenses, such as fish and game violations.

More serious criminal cases, such as robbery, auto theft, or assault, often start out as complaints filed in the Municipal Court but those cases are then transferred to the Superior Court located at the Hunterdon County courthouse.
