Operation Green Light – Wednesday February 24th

The Bay County Courthouse will be participating in Operation Green Light this Wednesday February 24th during the office hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). This annual driver license reinstatement event provides customers with an opportunity to pay overdue court-ordered obligations, while saving in additional fees. During this time we will be accepting payments for any citation or criminal case that has been referred to collections.  Collection fees will be waived for this 1 day only event. We will be accepting the payments via phone or in person at the counter.
