Among other responsibilities, the commissioners court:

* Sets the yearly property tax rate and approves the budget and employment level for the county;
* Sets commissioners and justice of the peace precinct boundaries;
* Calls, conducts and certifies elections, including bond elections;
* Sets employment and benefit policy;
* Establishes long-range thoroughfare, open space, land use, financial and law enforcement/jail needs plans;
* Acquires property for rights-of-way or other uses determined to be in the public's best interest;
* Reviews and approve subdivision platting and wastewater treatment for rural areas;
* Provides rural ambulance services and subsidizes rural fire protection;
* Oversees the construction, maintenance and improvement of county roads and bridges;
* Appoints non-elected department heads and standing committees;
* Supervises and controls the county courthouse, county buildings and facilities;
* Adopts a county budget;
* Determines county tax rates;
* Fills vacancies in elective and appointive positions; and
