Atascosa County Judge’s Report



The grand opening for JP3 went well. We should have the Truck Weigh Station operating in 30 days. I am pleased with what we have accomplished in a little over four years. We have made a necessary jail expansion. The Sheriff tells me he has over 40 prisoners renting the extra cells right now, and that to me means annualized […]

Remember that the grand opening celebration of JP3 is Friday, Feb. 14 at 11 a.m. We will have finger foods and I believe a cake. It is two miles north of Jourdanton on SH16. I made a mistake last week when listing the early voting sites, starting February 18 in Atascosa Co. In the Pleasanton area it is JP4 just […]

We will have finger foods, and I believe Judge Carrasco is […]

The new year comes like a fresh blanket of snow, covering the past year. The past year for many has been good and profitable. Also, for many it has been difficult and financially hard. For many it has been healthy, but for many in 2019 their health or the health of loved ones has been a problem. Many lost loved […]

During this holiday season we honor the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ, as well as other significant religious beliefs. It is during these crazy times we reflect and think about what is important. Faith, family and hope are what I pray we are spending time on. I pray for all my readers’ health, their family’s health and their […]

I would like to discuss open records requests with you today. I want to start by saying I have no problem with a realistic open records request.
