The Commissioners Court of each county is composed of four commissioners and the county judge.  The county judge, as a member of the commissioners court, is vested with the same authority to make motions and vote on all matters as each commissioner. 

There are two types of terms for the Commissioners Court.  A regular term, which is held once each month, and a special term, which may be called at any time.   A session of the Commissioners Court is simply that period of time at which the court is actually sitting and discharging its duties during the term, recesses included.

Fayette County Commissioners Court meets in room 303 of the Courthouse.

Functions of the Commissioners Court:

  • To supervise and control the county courthouse, county buildings and facilities

  • To adopt a county budget, set salary and establish pension/retirement plans for county officials and employees

  • To determine county tax rates

  • To fill vacancies in elective and appointive positions

  • To let contracts in the name of the county

  • Issue bonds to finance specific functions authorized by enabling legislation

  • Hold local option elections as authorized by legislation

  • Organized Justice of the Peace Courts and Precincts, determine boundaries and election precinct boundaries

  • To administer such services as libraries, county hospitals, welfare programs, and parks and playgrounds
