The Town of Geddes Justice Court (Geddes Town Court) has jurisdiction over traffic related charges alleged to have been committed within the town’s boundaries. The only exception is for the village of Solvay. The village has its own justice court that adjudicates all village matters. The Geddes Town Court and the Solvay Village Court are both located in Solvay, a few blocks from each other.
The Geddes Town Court is busier than most other justice courts due to the interstate highways traversing Geddes. Most traffic violations adjudicated in the court are speeding infractions. They are prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys of the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office.
