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
