What happens when I appear in Bratenahl Mayor's Court?

Upon arrival please call (216) 681-1236 to check-in and remain in your vehicle until you directed to do otherwise. A member of the court staff will call your phone when it is your time for your appearance.

  • Temperatures will be taken and hand sanitizer will be provided.

  • Face coverings (masks) must be worn inside the building at all times.
