  1. #1 - I don't know what a commissioners court is in your state.
    #2 - wrong
    #3 - growing is one way, yes, you are correct. Increasing existing taxes is a way to increase revenue, but does not increase the tax base.

  3. Local governments are dependent, in most states, on the property tax. I don't know the law in your state, but local governments are not always allowed by state law to levy sales or income taxes.
