CitepayUSA - Pay Your Citation(s)

If the "Penalty Assessment" box is marked at the bottom of your citation, you have 30 days to pay your fine from the date you received the citation. You may pay your citation(s) in advance of your Traffic Arraignment date by:

  • Paying your citation/court fines online at CitepayUSA by credit card or electronic check. You must have the case number or citation number for payment. (Additional fees may apply.)
  • Mailing payment along with the citation(s) to:
    Alamogordo Municipal Court
    1376 E Ninth Street
    Alamogordo, New Mexico 88310
    (The court is not responsible for mail delays)
  • Placing payment in the Drop Off Box located in front of the North Entrance of the City Hall Building.
  • Paying in person at the Municipal Court office between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are closed for lunch. Hours may vary.

Bench Warrant

Your payment must be received on or before your traffic arraignment date or additional charges will be filed, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest, an additional $100 warrant fee will be assessed and your license will be suspended.

Court Appearance

If the "Court Appearance" box is marked at the bottom of your citation, you must appear in the Municipal Court on or before the date given for arraignment. After your appearance in court, if found guilty, you will be required to make arrangements to pay your fines. If you cannot afford the fines and fees on a payable citation, you can request to perform community service hours.
