Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 318.013
Contracts for Lease or Management of Landmarks


The commissioners court may, on recommendation of the commission or other interested persons, contract with a private person for the lease or management of any county-owned real estate or structure that is designated by the Texas Historical Commission as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark considered worthy of preservation because of its history, culture, or architecture.


The contract must be drawn in consultation with the commission and must specify the duties of the contracting party, including duties as to:


maintenance and repairs;


providing public access;


restricting inappropriate commercial uses; and


promoting preservation of the historic, cultural, or architectural aspects of the landmark.


The contract may be handled in the same manner as a contract for professional services rendered to a county, such as a contract for architectural or engineering services, if the contract is with a nonprofit organization chartered in this state.


The contract may be for a period of years as determined by the commissioners court.
Acts 1987, 70th Leg., ch. 149, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1987.
