County Commissioner, Precinct #2 - Scott Haag
The job of the county commissioner calls for
hands-on service delivery, as well as policy-making decisions about a
variety of important matters.
Four commissioners, each elected from a quarter of the county's
population, serve along with the county judge on the commissioners
court. Many people know that the commissioners court is responsible for
building and maintaining the roads and bridges of the county. In Comal county, the roads
are centralized under a unit road system.
The commissioners court also has the responsibility to adopt the budget
and tax rate that is sufficient to fund the personnel, equipment and
infrastructure necessary to deliver the services provided by the county.
Typically, the commissioners court is responsible for conducting
business on behalf of the county, and only the commissioners court can
enter into contracts on behalf of the county.
