About Travis County Commissioners Court
As a group, the commissioners and county judge are the chief policy-making and administrative branch of county government. Among their many functions, the court sets the tax rate, determines fees for many county services, and determines how the collected revenues will be distributed among different county departments to provide services to the community.
The court meets in a voting session each Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. in the commissioners courtroom on the first floor of the Travis County Administration Building at 700 Lavaca, Austin. The public is welcome in the courtroom, or may choose to watch a live broadcast of the proceedings on TCTV-17 or to view video files.
