Applications Open for Award-Winning University of County Government

New Braunfels —

Applications are open for Comal County’s fifth annual University of County Government, a free 10-week course that recently won a Best Practices award from the Texas Association of Counties. The classes – which take attendees behind the scenes of the county’s court system, jail and Sheriff’s Office, Elections Office, and more – are held each Tuesday from 6-9pm., starting Feb. 28th and ending with graduation May 2nd and recognition at the subsequent Commissioners Court meeting, May 4th. All county residents are eligible to apply for the class, which is limited to 25 members. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The class meets primarily in the historic Comal County Courthouse, with half of the sessions off-site, including tours of the jail, district courts, Extension Office and Elections Office. County Judge Sherman Krause notes, the County is  “excited to offer this opportunity for Comal County residents to learn how their county government works and how their tax dollars are spent,”
