Smith County to Host Free County Government 101 Symposium

To kick off National County Government Month this year, Smith County is inviting the public to a free County Government 101 Symposium on April 2.

From 9 to 11:45 a.m. on Monday, April 2, officials will be offering presentations about how county government works generally across the state and specifically here in Smith County.

“A major focus of the current Commissioners Court over the past two years has been increasing the lines of communication with our citizens,” Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran said. “We want to have continual dialogue with citizens about how our county government works and how we might do better. This is just another opportunity to continue that dialogue.”

Alan Bristol, a county relations officer for the Texas Association of Counties, will give a general overview of the county government structure in Texas, the role of various elected county officials and legislative restraints on how county government operates.

Smith County Auditor Ann Wilson will speak about government finance, specifically discussing revenue sources for county government and typical expenditures.

Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran will talk specifically about Smith County government.

The symposium will be held at the R.B. Hubbard Center, “The Hub,” at 304 E. Ferguson in Tyler.

 “Because it is National County Government Month, this is a good time of year to emphasize the need for citizens to become more educated and engaged in county government, as well as all levels of government.”
