Texas Counties Deliver – learn how county government serves you


About the Office

The Commissioners Court is the governing body of the county which consists of 5 elected representatives; The County Judge as the chairman and Four Commissioners.  

The Court is responsible for all budgetary decisions and setting the tax rate each year that is sufficient to fund the personnel, equipment and infrastructure necessary to deliver the services provided by the county.  Each summer the Commissioners set the budget for the coming fiscal year.  A series of workshops are held for the County elected officials and department heads to review their recommended budget with The Commissioners Court.  The final budget is usually adopted by the end of August each year.

The Commissioner Court is a court of record and all minutes of proceeding are recording as permanent documents by the County Clerk.  Commissioners Court minutes are available for public viewing in the County Clerk's office during normal business hours.
