|Clerk's Office Temporarily Closed May 14-15|
Due to a planned power outage by the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Municipal Court Clerk’s office will be temporarily closed to the public, except for posting the bond of an inmate, effective 7am on Saturday May 14. We expect to be fully operational by Sunday May 15 @ 8am.
DIRECTIONS & MAP
The Franklin County Municipal Court is located at 375 S. High St., in the County Complex bounded by High Street, Fulton Street, Front Street, and Mound Street in downtown Columbus. The picture below is a map of downtown showing the location of the Franklin County Municipal Court.
The Municipal Court building is the southernmost building facing High Street in the complex marked by the red star.
Entering from Front Street actually takes you into the Common Pleas Complex. After passing through the County Security screeners (this is not Municipal Court Security), you would proceed up the steps, turn right at the top of the steps and then proceed eastward through the Common Pleas Complex until you come to a set of steps proceeding down towards High Street. At the foot of the steps, turn right and enter the Municipal Court Complex on the 1st Floor Hallway adjoining the Traffic Court area. Do not exit the Common Pleas area into the lobby or you will have to be rescreened by Municipal Court security.
There are parking lots and garages on the east and wide sides of the Court Complex. There is metered street parking on Front, Mound and Fulton Streets, but be careful as these meters have a one hour limit and the City of Columbus strictly enforces parking regulations in this area of downtown. The streets surrounding the Courthouse Complex are in the tow zone after 4 p.m. on weekdays.
