Re: Authority of a county commissioners court that establishes a veterans treatment court program under Government Code chapter 124 to direct and control administrative details including the hiring and supervision of grant-funded personnel (RQ-0139-KP)
S U M M A R Y
Chapter 124 of the Government Code grants a county commissioners court authority to create staff positions and provide funding when it establishes a veterans treatment court program. However, the chapter authorizes the veterans treatment court judge, not the commissioners court, to select and supervise the staff of a veterans treatment court program.
