A civil infraction citation (ticket) will be issued at release if not paid during their incarceration. Failure to pay this citation within 14 days of release from the Montcalm County Jail will result in the citation being turned over to District Court for collection, issuance of a Warrant and $150 fine, plus costs which are paid directly to the 64B District Court.
