Stark to retire from Municipal Court

Thursday, January 15, 2015 by Mark Richardson

Rebecca Stark, clerk of Austin’s Municipal Court, has announced that she plans to retire from the City of Austin on March 31. Stark has served as clerk for the past 15 years. Court officials say that under her leadership, Austin became the only city in Texas to maintain an online case management system for its municipal court. Stark gave credit to her staff when reflecting on her time at the court. “I am proud of our accomplishments, including running an efficient court and launching an innovative case management system,” she said. “All of this was possible due to the hard work of the great team that is Municipal Court.” Municipal Court handles mainly Class C misdemeanor cases, which include traffic, city ordinance, state code, juvenile, and disabled parking violations.
