The Village Court is part of the Unified Court System of New York State and has both criminal and limited civil adjudication powers for offenses committed within the Village, though this Court does not exercise the full extent of its authority.

The Court is usually in session on the second Wednesday of every month beginning at 7 P.M., however summer sessions can vary due to scheduling. Court sessions are noted on the Village calendar. Fines for parking and many moving violations can be paid by mail, or by appointment in the Village Hall. Contested violations are only disposed of during Court sessions.
