The County Judge presides over the Quorum Court without a vote but with the power of veto. The Judge's Office prepares the agenda and all business of the Quorum Court. The business is first discussed in committee meetings, then in a Full Court Session. There are nine committees: Buildings & Grounds, Community Development/Grants, Education, Finance, Health & Welfare, Judicial, Public Safety/Emergency Services, Solid Waste/Recycling, and Youth & Recreation. These committees meet on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of every month. After business is discussed and voted upon in Committee Meetings, it is presented to the Full Court on the next Monday. Each item is voted upon by all Justices of the Peace in the Full Court and is either formally adopted or rejected. The schedule of meetings is subject to the county's holiday schedule.
The meetings are held at 5:30 in the Quorum Court Chambers of the Jefferson County Courthouse at 101 West Barraque Street. Notice of special meetings are announced through the Pine Bluff Commercial.
