The Texas Association of Counties has prepared a 17-minute video, “County Government: There When You Need It,” that describes the structure and history of Texas county government and explains the role and functions of the various county offices.
Also, county officials or teachers who wish to use the video for educational purposes may download this zipped file
(33MB) and save to the local computer.
Smaller portions of the video can be viewed by clicking the County Government Video button on the left. (These videos are hosted on YouTube.)
The entire DVD or VHS tape is available for $19.95 by contacting the Administration Department at the Texas Association of Counties at (800) 456-5974 or by emailing .
