JUSTICE SYSTEM TASK FORCE REQUESTS
PUBLIC INPUT RE: YS MISDEMEANOR
CASES BEING SENT TO YS MAYOR’S COURT
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATION
The Justice System Task Force is considering a recommendation to Village
Council that Village Council adopt a policy requiring the use of the Yellow Springs
Mayor’s Court for all misdemeanor cases occurring in the Village (unless other-
wise required to be charged elsewhere under state or federal law).
In the last several years, many Yellow Springs misdemeanor cases which could
have been sent to mayor’s court were sent to Xenia Municipal Court.
JSTF is seeking input from the public. Changes to the recommendation will be
considered based upon this input during the regular April 10 meeting of the JSTF.
Public comment is currently being solicited by the JSTF on this recom-
mendation. Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail com-
ments to the JSTF c/o Clerk, 100 Dayton St., Yellow Springs, OH 45387
by April 6 or attend the regular meeting of the JSTF at 7 p.m. on April
10 in Council Chambers of the Community Center.
