A board of 6 directors governs the Appraisal District. Board members select the Chief Appraiser, adopt the annual district budget, appoint Appraisal Review Board members, and ensure that the district follows the policies and procedures required by law. The board's authority over appraisal matters is limited.
The board does not appraise property, make decisions affecting the appraisal roll, or review values on individual properties. The Property Tax Code assigns these tasks to the Chief Appraiser and the Appraisal Review Board.
