Duties and Responsibilities of the County Judge

The Texas Constitution vests broad judicial and administrative powers in the position of county judge, who presides over a five-member commissioner’s court, which has budgetary and administrative authority over county government operations. The county judge handles such widely varying matters as:

  • Hearings for beer and wine license applications
  • Calling elections
  • Posting election notices
  • Receiving and canvassing election returns
  • Performing marriages
  • Head of civil defense, disaster relief.

My goal with this website is to give you access to and information about your county government. You are a big part of that process, and I encourage your input - in writing or by e-mail. And please feel free to visit our office on the first floor of the courthouse.
