The Court Clerk is available Mondays and Tuesdays, from 8:00am until 11:00am.
The Town of Danby Court serves the community by adjudicating a wide variety of cases. Most of the cases are Vehicle and Traffic Law infractions, but the court also handles DWI/DUI violations, DEC violations, New York State Park Police, as well as traditional criminal or civil matters.
A monthly audit of reported cases is sent to the New York State Office of Court Administration.
All monies collected are given to the Ton of Danby’s Town Supervisor by the 11th of the month following every reporting month.
All bail money received by the court is retained in a non-interest bearing account until a case is disposed of or released by the judge.
The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
