The job of the County Commissioner calls for hands-on service delivery as well as policy-making budget decisions.

Four commissioners, each elected from a quarter of the county's population, serve along with the county judge on the commissioners' court. In addition to ensuring those county roads are maintained, commissioners vote with the county judge to set the budget for all county departments and adopt a tax rate.
