Quorum Court

In Arkansas local government, the county judge serves as the chief executive of the county. As such, the county judge authorizes and approves disbursement of all appropriated county funds, operates the system of county roads, administers ordinances enacted by the quorum court, has custody of county property, accepts grants from federal, state, public and private sources, and presides at the meetings of the quorum court without a vote but with the power of veto.

The county judge sits in a judicial role as the county court. The county court has jurisdiction in matters relating to county taxes, general public utilities, trade and commerce, transportation and natural resources. The quorum court meets in the Union County Courthouse.
