ANNOUNCEMENT: Cathy Haney Recently Announced that the City of Missouri City Netted More Than $70,965 in their Warrant Roundup

“Aubrey R. Taylor Communications, the publisher of Your Thought Matters Newspaper would like to congratulate Cathy Haney the Director of Municipal Court in Missouri City, Texas. Haney has served with the City of Missouri since 2000 and was Court Administrator prior to serving in her current role as Director of Municipal Court Services. She has also served as Court Administrator with the City of Friendswood. Her accomplishments include her being one of 40 Level III Certified Municipal Court Clerks in the State of Texas and her certification as a Court Manager through the National Center for State Courts’ Institute for Court Management, according to the Missouri City website. But the intent of this announcement is to commend Haney, Mayor Allen Owen, and the entire Governing body in Missouri City for raising more than $70,965 for the city. Check out the information below.”Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher 


CATHY HANEY: “This is our sixth year participating in the initiative and our successful Warrant Roundup program was a team endeavor,” said Cathy Haney, Director of Municipal Court Services. “It showed us what can be done with a collective approach on the part of the Police Department, Court staff, 911 Dispatch, Communications and Public Works Departments working together to make the effort a success.”

Missouri City Recently Netted More Than $70,965 in Warrant Roundup Says Cathy Haney

Missouri City recently cleared 325 warrants and netted $70,965 during the Great Texas Warrant Roundup from Feb. 16 through March 10. The collections include monies paid for fines, court costs and cash bonds. With the amount of jail time served, known as face value, the City’s roundup effort totaled more than $115,569.

“This is our sixth year participating in the initiative and our successful Warrant Roundup program was a team endeavor,” said Cathy Haney, Director of Municipal Court Services. “It showed us what can be done with a collective approach on the part of the Police Department, Court staff, 911 Dispatch, Communications and Public Works Departments working together to make the effort a success.”

Haney also added that “our collection vendor, Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP, did an outstanding job notifying defendants in warrant of the statewide action.”

The program lasted two weeks and targeted individuals across Texas who have outstanding warrants for their arrest based upon the defendants’ failure to pay fines for traffic tickets and other misdemeanor crimes. Citizens with outstanding warrants had the opportunity to pay their fines or risk being arrested.

Missouri City Municipal Court staff is always looking for innovate ways to help citizens avoid serving jail time. One successful example involves a long-time Court volunteer. Filmore Cohen has worked with the Court for more than 10 years, making friendly phone calls to people, reminding them of their outstanding fines.

“He comes to the court office on Fridays and calls defendants who have missed their court date that week,” Haney said. “Once he starts calling, our phones ring off the walls.” About 30 percent of people he speaks with end up contacting the court, she added.

Among the payments received this year was for a defendant whose case dated back to 1991 and included charges for failure to appear, no license plate and failure to maintain financial responsibility (no insurance).

Overall, the warrant roundup program has been successful in the “Show Me City”.

In 2012, Missouri City cleared 400 bonds and netted $81,121 in cash and cash bonds during the Statewide Warrant Roundup, Haney said. With the amount of jail time served, known as face value, the City’s roundup effort totaled more than $163,603.

Among the payments received was one for a case dating back to 1988.

In 2011, the City cleared 381 warrants and netted $86,749, Haney said. The collections include monies paid for fines, court costs and bonds. With the amount of jail time served, the City’s roundup effort totaled more than $141,000. Most of the 381 warrants that were resolved involved traffic cases. One notable offense, an alcohol-related case dating back to 1998, was among those cleared.

In 2010, the City cleared 281 warrants and netted $63,000, Haney said. Most of the warrants resolved involved traffic offenses, city code violations and school truancies. In addition, several older cases were cleared off the books, allowing the Municipal Court staff to concentrate on newer warrants.

MISSOURI CITY, TEXAS: Watch Out for the Missouri City Council District A Race involving Bobby Marshall, Rodney Griffin and Yolanda Ford on Saturday, May 11, 2013

By Aubrey R. Taylor
President, Aubrey R. Taylor Communications
The Publisher of Your Thought Matters Newspaper

Back in the 2011 General Election face off in Missouri City for the District A City Council seat Rodney Griffin came within 33 votes of unseating the incumbent Bobby Marshall. However, a dismal 6.52% voter turnout in the (6) six precinct district largely made up of African-American voters proved a little too much for Griffin to overcome in his quest to unseat the incumbent. But Rodney L. Griffin is back on the ballot again in the 2013 General Election to be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013. However, he's not facing the incumbent alone this time around. Yolanda Ford, a local architectural designer and urban planner is also in the race seeking to unseat Councilman Bobby Marshall.
