Judge Donna Eyrse presides over the court and is appointed by the City Council. The role of the court is to provide a fair, independent and impartial forum for handling and deciding fine-only criminal cases arising within the city limits of Tye. The Municipal Court follows the procedures set forth under Texas Law and provides all persons the right to trial by judge or jury.
