Melissa Municipal Court Honored for 2015 Traffic Safety Initiatives

20160321_115800~2~2Municipal Court staff members Lorie Lambert and Samantha Grimes (pictured with Judge David Moore) were recognized by their peers  at Texas Municipal Courts Education Center’s “MTSI Conference,” held March 20-22, 2016, at the Omni Dallas Hotel at Park West in Dallas.  Melissa was one of 18 courts statewide that was awarded the Municipal Traffic Safety Initiative award for having demonstrated outstanding contributions to traffic safety and eliminating impaired driving in their respective communities.

Applicants were judged on their activities relating to increasing traffic safety while preventing impaired driving traffic crashes, traffic fatalities, juvenile DUI, child safety seat offenses, red light running, and other traffic related offenses. Throughout 2015, the Melissa Municipal Court organized community awareness efforts in Melissa with a focus on a different safety issue each month.  The two staff members work regularly with city departments and schools to increase public awareness and education about topics such as motorcycle, highway and bicycle safety, to name but a few.  Congratulations to Lorie and Samantha!

Court times are 3:00 p.m. unless otherwise stated.  Please see table below for specific dates.
