About the City Clerk/Treasurer

The City Council appoints a municipal court judge for a term of two to four years. Judge Jimmy Henson is Inman's current municipal court judge.
The City's municipal court has jurisdiction over cases arising under all City ordinances and over all offenses that are subject to a fine not exceeding $500.00 or imprisonment not exceeding 30 days, or both, and that occur within the municipality.
Municipal court is held in the courtroom at City Hall. The court convenes on the second Tuesday of each month at 9:00 am and the fourth Tuesday of each month at 2:00 pm. The municipal court judge sets the dates and times for jury trials, as needed.
The City Clerk/Treasurer also serves as the Clerk of Court, a responsibility that includes maintaining all court records; receiving payments for tickets and fines; handling jury-related matters; and managing the court calendar.
Effective April 2017, the City holds elections for Mayor and members of the City Council in odd-numbered years on Election Day in November. Elections are staggered for four-year terms. The next election will occur in November 2019.
