    The principal functions of the commissioners’ court are legislative and executive. Although referred to as a court, commissioners’ courts generally exercise only limited judicial powers. These include the ability to compel testimony under oath, the ability to issue citations for contempt, and the ability to make findings of fact.

    But these would vary if you are from Texas or Missouri.
