Thank you for visiting the website for Johnson County Precinct #3. We hope this site is informative for you and provides a means for you to contact us with your concerns, suggestions, and, hopefully, an occasional praise.
Precinct #3 is located in the northeast portion of Johnson County, Texas, and, while being the smallest in area at slightly over 114 square miles, it still boasts over 278 miles of county roadway. In addition to rural county area, we also include all or parts of the communities of Burleson, Briar Oaks, Alvarado, Venus, Lillian, and Mansfield.
The general precinct boundaries are Tarrant County to the north, Ellis County to the east, Hwy 67 to the south, and IH35(W) to the west, although the southwestern boundaries include all of Alvarado out to Alvarado Lake. The western boundary are bordered by the railroad track from south of Burleson down to CR 707 and then follows CR707 to IH 35.
Many people relate the commissioner’s office with road repairs but, while that is a large portion of our responsibility, there is much more to the duties of a county commissioner.
The Commissioners’ Court of every Texas county is comprised of four Commissioners and one County Judge. Each Commissioner is elected from approximately one fourth of the county’s population and the County Judge is elected countywide. As a whole, the Commissioners’ Court handles general county business, including:
Determine County tax rates & set yearly property tax rate.
Adopt a County budget Approve budgets and employment levels for the County Establish financial and law enforcement / jail-needs plans Set employment and benefit policy.
Establish long-range thoroughfare, open space, land use, and development plans. - Review and approve subdivision planning and rural wastewater treatment - Oversee construction, maintenance, and improvement of county roads and bridges - Set commissioner and justice of the peace precinct boundaries - Supervise and control the County courthouse, County buildings, and facilities.
