What happens to the fine and court costs I pay for my citation?
None of the fines or court costs associated with traffic or criminal violations comes back to either the Columbus Police Department or the City of Columbus. Fines are usually appropriated to local schools (see Nebraska Constitution, Article VII-5). Court costs are distributed according to Nebraska State Statutes (see the breakdown of various court costs and where they go).

The City of Columbus can not specify how any fines or court costs are distributed.
