County Commissioner, Precinct #3 - Kevin Webb
County Commissioner Responsibilities
The job of the county commissioner calls for hands-on service delivery, as well as policy-making decisions about a variety of matters. Four commissioners, each elected from a quarter of the county's population, serve along with the county judge on the commissioners court.
The commissioners court has the responsibility to adopt the budget and tax rate that is sufficient to fund the personnel, equipment and infrastructure necessary to deliver the services provided by the county. Typically, the commissioners court is responsible for conducting business on behalf of the county, and only the commissioners court can enter into contracts on behalf of the county.
County government operations are tailored to meet the needs and resources of the community, so the programs overseen by the commissioners court may vary from county to county. In a typical county, the commissioners court establish precinct boundaries for commissioners and justices of the peace, determine the number and type of county employees and their compensation, acquire property for rights of way or other public uses, adopt and enforce subdivision regulations, provides rural ambulance services and subsidizes rural fire protection, and supervises and controls the county courthouse and other county buildings and facilities.

Alamo Area MPO Updates—November 2023
Loop 337 and River Road Overpass: Complete.
The project did not require additional right-of-way or significant utility relocation due to the foresight of our predecessors in acquiring the right-of-way long before it was needed. We owe a lot to the folks who did this, and we should be looking for opportunities to lead in the same way.

IH 35 and SH46 Intersection
It’s no secret that the intersection of IH35 and SH46 in New Braunfels is the region’s most pressing transportation project. Comal County has been working with TxDOT, the City of New Braunfels, Guadalupe County, and the City of Seguin to bring the project to fruition and a lot of progress has been made. TxDOT has completed most of the design and is now working on the phasing of the project to allow for funding this enormous infrastructure project in more palatable chunks. There will be more public meetings this winter.
Kevin has also worked on a number of other projects at the County and his priorities have been public safety, county infrastructure from roads to facilities, and supporting the County's employees so they can best serve you.
Open space and protecting what makes Comal County the beautiful place it is are a critical challenge facing the county and Kevin is working with area partners to try to preserve some of our special places.
