  • The county commissioner is an elected official from the county in which they live. Each county is split into four different regions and a commissioner is elected from each region to represent that part of the county. The commissioners serve alongside the County Judge to make county policies. As a group, the Commissioners and County Judge are the chief policy-making and administrative branch of county government.

    Among other responsibilities, the commissioners court:

    • Sets the yearly property tax rate.Adopts a county budget and approves the budget and employment level for the county.
    • Sets employment and benefit policy.
    • Sets commissioners and justice of the peace precinct boundaries.
