Tusayan Will have to Pay For Court Services

March 20, 2018

The free ride is coming to an end.

The Tusayan Town Council is considering an intergovernmental agreement with the Williams Justice Court to provide court services for Tusayan. The town has been getting these services since shortly after incorporation but it has not had to pay for them, aside from the fines and fees recovered. If Tusayan wants to continue with 

Williams Justice Court the town will have to pay $15,000 a year. The town would also have to hire a judge for a yet to be determined yearly fee. Right now those duties are handled by Judge Robert Krombeen, who said he would be happy to continue.The deal is similar to the arrangement the City of Williams has with the Williams Justice Court.

The Town Council has largely been happy with the court services which travel to Tusayan on a regular basis. Since court has been held locally, there has been a sharp decline in the number of Failure to Appear violations.
