    Legal Guidance

    "A local landowner is willing to trade the county rock in exchange for a road crew doing some work on his private road. It's really good rock and the county could make use of it."

    Can the county barter work on a private road for road material from the site where the road is located?

    It depends on the county’s population. If the population exceeds 7,500, the county cannot repair or maintain a private road or property under Tex. Const. Art. III, sec. 52f.
