CITIES AND TOWNS - SALARIES AND WAGES - JUDGES - SALARY OF MUNICIPAL COURT JUDGES
CITIES AND TOWNS ‑- SALARIES AND WAGES ‑- JUDGES ‑- SALARY OF MUNICIPAL COURT JUDGES Chapter 3.50 RCW empowers certain cities to establish a municipal court that is not part of the state's district court system.  If a city establishes a municipal court pursuant to chapter 3.50 RCW, the salary of its municipal court judges is set by the city by ordinance.  A city may pay its municipal court judges less than full-time district judges receive when serving in a municipal department established pursuant to chapter 3.46 RCW.
