Carmel City Court has a brand new website. This website is provided by the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC) to the citizens of Carmel at no additional cost.
Recognizing the very real and growing concerns about local budgets and government expenditures Judge Poindexter looked for ways to reduce the cost to the Carmel taxpayer of operating the court while still maintaining a high level of service. Having already partnered with the State Court Administrator’s Office, for the delivery of the Odyssey case management system and the electronic citation and warning system, Judge Poindexter once again contacted JTAC.
JTAC’s website development team quickly began working with Judge Poindexter, the sole judge in Carmel City Court, to develop an easy to use and easy to manage website. JTAC and Judge Poindexter began addressing simple matters that affect residents of Carmel and other visitors to Carmel City Court. The website can be updated to meet the changing demands in a modern court.
JTAC provided Carmel City Court its own local website, provided at no charge to the city or the court. JTAC will absorb the costs of developing and hosting the website and after a site is published, the local court will have the ability to edit and maintain their own website. Naturally, JTAC will provide technical support as needed.
The Carmel City Court’s new website a details upcoming holiday closings, provides information about the court’s hours of operation, holidays, how to find the court, and helpful links to other city and county officials. The new website also provides a lengthy set of FAQs for the public to help in understanding how trials are conducted, what to expect in court, and how to easily pay fines and court costs online.
