Two-county Districts; Appointment of Commission


In a district composed of land in two or more counties, the commissioners court of the county of jurisdiction by a majority vote shall appoint one commissioner. The commissioners court of the other county included in whole or in part within the district shall appoint by a majority vote a second commissioner. The two commissioners courts shall appoint the third commissioner at a joint meeting of the two commissioners courts called and presided over by the county judge of the county of jurisdiction.


Notice in writing of the joint meeting of commissioners courts shall be given by mail or delivered in person at least two days before the day set for the meeting.


Each of the county judges and county commissioners composing the commissioners courts of both counties shall be entitled to one vote in appointing the third commissioner. A majority vote of those present at the meeting shall be sufficient to make the appointment.


On the termination of the term of office of each commissioner or in case of vacancy, a successor shall be appointed by the same commissioners court which appointed the commissioner whose place is being filled.


Except for the matters expressly provided for in this section, two-county districts are subject to all other provisions of this subchapter.
