In Commissioners' Court of Hayes County v. District Judge, 506 S.W.2d 630, 636 (Tex. Civ. App.-San Antonio 1974, writ ref'd n.r.e.), conferences and discussion took place between a district judge, who does not come within the provisions of the Act, and the Commissioners' Court, which does. The Commissioners' Court and judge advised one another with regard to the probation budget for the judicial district, but the Commissioners' Court did not take any conclusive action. The appellate court found that such conferences were not within the mandatory requirements of the Act.
