What is the Quorum Court?
The Quorum Court is the legislative body of county government and is composed of 15 members called Justices of the Peace elected to two-year terms. Each JP represents a district of roughly equal population. The Quorum Court may exercise the following powers, but not limited to:
- Levy taxes as prescribed by law
- Appropriate public funds for the expenses of the county in a manner prescribed by ordinance
- Preserve the peace and order and secure freedom from dangerous or noxious activities; provided, however, that no act may be declared a felony
- For any public purpose, contract, or join with another county, or with any other political subdivision or with the United States
- Create, consolidate, separate, revise, or abandon any elected office or offices except during the term thereof; provided, however, that a majority of those voting on the question at a general election have approved said action
- Fix the number and compensation of deputies and county employees
- Fix the compensation of each county officer with a minimum and maximum to be determined by law
- Fill vacancies in elected county offices
- Provide for any service or performance of any function relating to county affairs
- To exercise other powers, not inconsistent with law, necessary for effective administration of authorized services and functions
