Harris County's qualified voters elect four commissioners in their respective precincts to serve four-year terms. The commissioners, along with an elected county judge, serve as members of Harris County Commissioners Court, the administrative head of our county government. As Precinct One commissioner, it's a pleasure to acquaint you with our Mission and our Vision statements.
The primary charge of all commissioners is to maintain the administration and operations of parks, and road and bridge projects. To this end, Precinct One's daily Mission Statement is to efficiently and effectively develop, maintain and enhance precinct parks, roads and bridges with the added component and provisions of community services/referrals, and educational-recreational programming within the Precinct.
In addition to Precinct One's primary charge, the mission also includes the provision of activities, transportation and services for senior citizens and youth, including a division dedicated to delivery of social services and referrals on behalf of the indigent populations of the county.
