Texas Water Code
Sec. § 57.340
Claims, Payment Orders, and Appeals


The commissioners court, in a regular session, shall pass on claims. The commissioners court shall approve each claim it finds to be correct and shall issue an order stating that approval and shall enter the order in its minutes.


When the order of approval is entered in the minutes, the claim becomes a valid claim against the district.


If the commissioners court approves a claim under this section, the person making the claim shall file the claim with the trustees.


If the person making the claim is not satisfied with the terms of the order of approval or if the commissioners court refuses to approve the claim, the person may appeal the decision of the commissioners court.


When a claim is filed under Section 57.339 (Claims Not Approved Before District Was Dissolved) of this code, the county clerk shall immediately issue notice of the filing to all persons interested in the district. The notice shall be posted in three public places in the district and at the courthouse door not less than 20 days before the next regular session of the commissioners court.
