Okay, so I have a question:
In her declaration, Judge Horn mentions the Texas Government Code, chapter 418.108. There's a lot of information here, but after skimming through various parts of the chapter (believe it or not I don't have that much time on my hands, it appears as though the county judge is sort of #1 here, which makes sense, but that the next level down is the mayor, not the governing board of each city (assuming the area is incorporated). Granted, I think the mayor can delegate these choices to the council (which is a good idea generally speaking) but I don't see where it goes straight to the council. I'm not really an expert on this, but if anyone has a bit of legal experience or knows the law, I'd love to know what I'm missing.
As a side note, I learned that the mayor has the power to order an evacuation of the city. Good to know.
