Debt Information

Chambers County records reflect a modest debt level and a much-improved reserve level that have resulted from conservative fiscal management practices. The County practices conservative budgeting and adopts a fund balance policy that requires the County to maintain an unassigned fund balance in the General Fund not less than 25% of annual expenditures.

Chambers County recognizes several long-term needs that continuously need studying and funding by the Commissioners' Court. Road construction and other infrastructure projects will be necessary to facilitate growth in industry and population.
