Effective August 1, 2017, traffic violation hearings will be moved to the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. Ordinance violations, housing violations, and parking tickets will continue to be heard in Municipal Court. This restructure will alleviate onerous compliance of fiduciary duties associated with traffic violations and save the Town $32,000 in software upgrades. On average, Municipal Court hears cases from just 1% of East Greenwich residents each year. Please see the statistical information and the supporting ordinance reference for more details.
