Conflict of Interest

Beginning January 1, 2006, a new state law (Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code) requires the filing of conflict of interest questionnaires by certain individuals and businesses.

The questionnaire requires disclosure of certain business and gift giving relationships, if any, the filers may have with commissioners court members, the purchasing agent, and any other elected/appointed officials.


The new law applies to:

  • businesses and individuals who contract with the County,

  • businesses and individuals who seek to contract with the County, (regardless of whether a bidder is awarded the contract), and

  • Agents who represent such businesses in their business dealings with the County.

If you have any questions about compliance, please consult your own legal counsel. Compliance is the individual responsibility of each individual, business, and agent who is subject to the law's filing requirement.

If you are required to file a Conflict of Interest Questionnaire, you should file with the county clerk by mailing it to the county clerk's office at:
