The City of Stanwood operates a Traffic Violations Bureau under the auspices of Cascade District Court. All traffic infractions issued in city limits are held at the local level for 15 days, unless payment or a request for a hearing is received prior to that time frame. Tickets paid at the City level are not filed in Cascade Court. Per state statute, we do mail a copy to the Department of Licensing.
If no response is received within the 15 days, the ticket is forwarded to Cascade District Court, where additional penalties are added and, where applicable, notice is mailed to the Department of Licensing to begin the process of suspending the defendant’s Driver’s License.
Feel free to call our office at 425-388-5290 for information on tickets.
