Newly elected county officials attend seminar in Austin to learn about county government
The three newly elected members of the county, which included two county commissioners and the county judge, attended a three-day seminar in Austin this week, where they learned about the general overview of how a county government functions.
County Judge Michael Roach said the seminar covered the basics of county government, such as their constitutional duties and where those derived from, open meetings, open information laws and emergency resources to name a few.
“It really was a 30,000-foot view of county government,” Roach said. “It didn’t really get deep into the weeds on any of the issues.”
