Mission Statement of the Municipal Court
Our mission is to provide an impartial, unbiased, fair, and respectful forum for the trials of all Class C misdemeanor Penal Code offenses, Health and Safety Code offenses, Alcoholic Beverage Code offenses, City Ordinance offenses, as well as to preside over administrative and civil proceedings, as authorized by state law.  Presiding Judge Michelle Locke is appointed by the City Council and is sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Texas, and to uphold the laws of the State of Texas. 
Our goal is to provide a neutral, courteous, and fair forum for the trial of all Class C misdemeanor offenses arising under Texas civil and criminal statutes and city ordinances. The judges of this Court are appointed by the City Council of the City of Lakeway to preserve, protect, and defend the United States Constitution and the laws of Texas.


The three separate but equal branches of government are:

  1. Executive Branch (City Administrator and all departments)
  2. Legislative Branch (City Council)
  3. Judicial Branch (Municipal Court)

The Municipal Court and its officers represent the Judicial Branch of the City of Lakeway government. This Court and its officers are dedicated to the principles of impartiality, fairness, integrity, separation of powers, and judicial independence.
These are the principles upon which our country was founded and to which the Court is committed in its role as the Judicial Branch of this local government.
