Re: Authority of a commissioners court to
maintain roads used for school bus purposes
Dear Messrs. Bond and Strange:
You have both asked about county maintenance of roads used by school
Mr. Bond asks:
Under what circumstances, if any, is it proper for County
Commissioners to maintain a private road which is used as a
school bus route? Does the answer depend on whether travel
over such a road is necessary to reach schoolchildren entitled to
bus transportation, or whether such access is for the convenience
of the schoolchildren?
In that connection, he advises:
McCulloch County is a rural county of roughly 10,000
population. In all four of our precincts, there are numerous
residences which are connected to the public roads by private
roads not dedicated to County use. In many cases, the
landowners desire to keep the roads private to discourage
poachers and persons desiring to dump trash, unwanted animals,
etc in the outlying areas. These private roads are of various
lengths, with varying numbers of residences lying along them.
