Appointed by the State District Judges every two years, the County Auditor is one aspect
of the County's checks and balances system, since it is neither created by nor under the
hierarchal control of the Commissioners. As an accountant, the County Auditor has general
oversight of all the books and records of all county officials. He/She is charged with
enforcing all laws governing county finances. As an economist, the Auditor advises the
Commissioners Court about financial conditions as they affect the decision-making process.
The County Auditor is responsible for:
- Forecasting financial data for the budget
- Auditing records and accounts of various county departments
- Administering accounting records for all county funds
- Advising Commissioners about county financial conditions as they affect decision-making.
