Posted on Oct 05, 2017

Amarillo, TX – The City of Amarillo Municipal Court’s third annual Veteran’s Docket and Service Day will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Noon). Municipal Court and the Amarillo VA Healthcare System have partnered together to provide assistance with outstanding City-issued citations and violations. During the Veteran’s Docket and Service Day, the VA Health Care System has arranged several provider agencies to educate veterans on available resources and continuing services.

“This court is prepared to work with each veteran to find a reasonable solution for any City-issued violations,” says Court Administrator Victoria Jaramillo Medley. “The focus will be on addressing court compliance while ensuring that the specific needs of the veteran is also being met. The provider agencies will be set up at the court in a designated area and will provide one-on-one guidance.”

The provider agencies that will be in attendance at the Veteran’s Docket and Service Day include the Texas Veterans Commission, Veteran Resource Center, Legal Aid of Northwest Texas, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Texas Workforce Solutions, Military Veteran Peer Network, Vet Center, VetStar, MET Inc., and the Salvation Army.

“We are aware that some veterans are going through their own personal battles, which may have prevented them from handling any new or old Class C misdemeanor violations they have with the City of Amarillo which is why we believe the Veteran’s Docket and Service Day is essential in meeting the needs of our veterans,” Court Community Programs Coordinator Tiffany Butler says. “Not only is it a special time set aside for veterans to come to a reasonable solution, but also a special time to encourage them to explore some of the community resources they have available.”
