The Commissioners Court is the general governing body of Burnet County. The Court is comprised of the County Judge who is elected countywide and presides over the full Court, and four County Commissioners -- each elected from one of the County's four precincts. The four County Commissioners have both countywide and precinct responsibilities. Each commissioner is responsible for construction and maintenance of County roads within his or her precinct. Some Commissioners maintain offices both at the Courthouse-On-The-Square and within their precincts. They are responsive to the particular needs of people living within their areas of the County.
Despite the name, Commissioners Court is not a judicial court but the general governing body of the County. Primary duties of the Court include:
