For Municipal Ordinances, for which there is no equivalent Revised Code section, the Court sets the bond as follows:
 
  Squeaking / Peeling Tires $50.00 $82.00
  Noise / Burning Violations $50.00 $77.00
 
This bond schedule shall apply in similar amount to all local ordinances which can be identified as being substantially the same as the state code violation.
In the event the defendant is charged with a second violation within one (1) year of any of the offenses listed above or in any separate scheduled of bonds, the defendant may post a bond in lieu of appearance in the amount of the fine listed in the bond schedule plus Fifty Dollars ($50.00).
 
Bond for all offenses more serious than first degree misdemeanors, including felonies and capital cases, and bonds for certain violent misdemeanors listed in the next paragraph must beset within 48 hours of the defendant's arrest by a judge of this Court. If the defendant is charged with Domestic Violence, Violation of a Protection Order, and if the alleged victim is a family or household member, then the bond may only be set by court appearance (in person or by video) which shall be held at the earliest available opportunity.

For misdemeanors which require the court to set bond are: Domestic Violence, Violation of a Protection Order, Assault, Menacing by Stalking, Aggravated Menacing, Permitting Child Abuse, Escape, and Witness Intimidation. The bond in any of these misdemeanor cases, whether cash or surety, personal recognizance, or 10%, shall contain the express Bond Conditions set forth on attached Exhibit A, unless there is no alleged victim.

For all bonds set in any jailable misdemeanor case (not minor misdemeanor), whether Personal  Recognizance, Cash or Surety, or 10%, the Defendant shall pay a surcharge required by law in the amount of $25.00 within five (5) business days of the setting of bond.

For all misdemeanors not listed above, (or not in any other bond schedule which may be adopted by the Court for P.U.C.O. violations, or hunting and fishing law violations) an appearance is mandatory. However, the arresting or binding officer may permit the defendant to sign a personal recognizance bond, post a 10% bond in the amount indicated, or completely excuse bond when such bond is not deemed necessary by the officer to assure the defendant's court appearance, and the officer reasonably believes the defendant is not a danger to himself or others.
The bond schedule for offenses not listed above is as follows:
 
  Misdemeanor 1 $1,000.00
  Misdemeanor 2 $750.00
  Misdemeanor 3 $500.00
  Misdemeanor 4 $250.00
 
When an offense is not specifically denominated by the Revised Code as a particular class of misdemeanor, the bond for that offense shall be set by comparing the penalty indicated by the Revised Code for the offense to the penalties for the classes of misdemeanor listed above.
Any bond may be posted by use of a valid credit card pursuant to procedures in effect through the Clerk of Courts.
