Many traffic and criminal citations (also known as tickets) are payable in the Kettering Municipal Court Clerk’s Office and do not require a court appearance in front of the judge. These are called “waiverable” citations.
You can choose to appear before the judge on your court date for these citations. Or, you can choose to waive your right to a hearing in court, plead guilty and pay your costs and fines for these citations in the Clerk’s Office. Waiverable citations must be taken care of on or before your court date. Your court date is listed near the bottom of your citation.
If your offense is “non-waiverable,” you are required to appear before the judge on the court date and time listed on your citation. If you are unsure whether you need to appear before the judge, please call the Clerk of Kettering Municipal Court’s Office with the phone number listed.

What options do we have to reduce the impact of rate increases?
A portion of the water and sewer bill has always been based on how much water you use, and that will still account for a substantial portion of the overall bill. You can save money by conserving water, which will reduce the amount they pay every quarter. Learn more about some tips here.
If you are a commercial or business customer, you may be able to reduce your costs by downsizing your meter. Montgomery County Water Service Department allows businesses to request a decrease in their meter size, provided the customer and his/her plumbing contractor determine that a smaller meter will meet the building or facility water usage needs. All plumbing changes and upgrades related to the new meter size must still adhere to current Montgomery County Rules and Regulations, and may require permits and inspections of completed plumbing work. All costs associate with upgrading and replacing the meter are the responsibility of the customer.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
