|"Our commissioners court meetings have felt a little chaotic lately without many procedural guidelines. We'd like to implement some rules, but we don't know where to begin. Can TAC help?"|
Does TAC Legal Services have guidelines for running commissioners court meetings?
Yes. TAC Legal Services recently created a new handbook, Commissioners Court Meetings Procedure and Decorum. Texas law doesn't dictate what parliamentary procedure a commissioners court must follow. Many counties adopt Robert's Rules of Order, but these can be quite complicated and at times may conflict with Texas Law. The new guide offers a simplified approach to procedures to follow during commissioners court regular or special called meetings. If you prefer a physical copy of the guide, you may request one using our Legal Publications Order Form.
