COURT CLERK WEB SITE ANNOUNCEMENT
From Clerk Marcia J. Phelps
CONTACT OUR OFFICE WITH ANY QUESTIONS 740-670-7800

COVID 19 PANDEMIC is still a consideration and it is inconclusive as to whether it is ended.  The Clerk’s position on the question is to always use caution, be safe, if you have a fever or you are sick, you can write a letter to the court for consideration of a continuance.  If you have tested positive for COVID, don’t come to court but IMMEDIATELY WRITE A LETTER TO THE COURT.  You can email, fax, mail or have someone deliver the letter for you to the court.  IT IS THE DECISION OF THE COURT/JUDGE IF A CONTINUANCE WILL BE GRANTED.  THE CLERK’S OFFICE WILL PROCESS THE LETTER.  
EMAIL office@lcmunicipalcourt.com, 740-345-4250 FAX, 40 West Main Street Newark, Ohio 43055 physical location of the clerk’s office is the 3rd floor, this is the mailing address.  Include your mailing address, phone number and case number.     

I also want to send a friendly reminder to all those viewers of our web site to be alert as you travel our highways.  PLEASE drive safe, buckle up and do not text and drive, do not drink and drive!  Ask someone to be your designated driver.
