Breaking News, Tue, Nov 5:

SAN ANTONIO — During a marathon meeting Tuesday, Bexar County commissioners opted to help fund a downtown medical school, redraw precinct boundaries for justices of the peace and constables and start the process to appoint two part-time justices of the peace and one full-time judge to replace one seeking a higher office.

Commissioners voted 4-1 to change the shape of its four justice of the peace and constable precincts and to set a timetable to fill vacancies caused by the redistricting. Initially, Pct. 4 Commissioner Tommy Adkisson abstained from voting on the changes — which commissioners have been mulling for months and will take effect at midnight Friday — but he changed his mind during discussion.

“There’s just no time, here, to vet this properly, so I haven’t voted on any of these,” he said. “I wish we had more time. For the record, I vote ‘no.’”

The boundaries will now mimic commissioners precincts, which are redistricted based on the U.S. Census every 10 years. Eventually, each will have one full-time and one part-time judge, but one precinct will have two full-time judges until 2016.

Of the existing five full-time and one part-time judges, three will complete their terms in a different precinct from the one they were elected to serve. Pct. 1 Judge Monica Lisa Caballero will now serve in Precinct 2, which will have two full-time judges until her term ends in three years.

Pct. 4 Commissioner Tommy Adkisson at first abstained from voting on redistricting — which will take effect at midnight Friday — but during discussion, he changed his vote to “no.” 
 
“My biggest concern is that the public should be more involved,” he said after the vote. “There are a lot of people that use our JP system.” 
 
Of the existing six justices, five full-time and one part-time, three will complete their terms in a different precinct from the one they were elected to serve. 
 
Pct. 1 Judge Monica Lisa Caballero now will serve in Precinct 2, which will have two full-time judges until her term ends in 2016. After that, all precincts each will have one full-time and one part-time judge…
 
Under the new precinct plan, there no longer will be a JP in the downtown area, and a new Pct. 1 office will open at 3505 Pleasanton Road next Tuesday, after the Veterans Day holiday. For at least a week, a shuttle will transport residents who show up at the former downtown office to the new location. 
 
Applications to fill the two part-time JP positions, which pay $45,560 each, are being accepted until Nov. 12, but commissioners said they’d only consider candidates who won’t run next year for a four-year term on the bench.
