Community Service

The Community Service Program provides an alternative payment method to defendants who may have insufficient resources or income to pay the fine and court costs assessed by the Beaumont Municipal Court.

One option to satisfy community service requirements is through a work program provided through the City of Beaumont Solid Waste Department's litter abatement program. This program is presently offered Monday through Saturday. Participants in this program will receive a credit of $12.50 per hour toward their fines and costs for every hour worked.

Each participant will be required to read and sign the Terms and Conditions of the Community Service Program Contract, as well as keep an accurate time log (provided by the court clerk) to submit upon completion. The participant will also be required to sign a waiver of liability. The judge may also assign community service at other locations.

You must first see the judge to request community service. If community service is allowed, the judge will also set a deadline to complete the community service. When an applicant is approved for community service, he or she has 72 hours to contact the assigned supervisor to schedule the work assignment.
