About Our Government
The City of Boerne, incorporated in 1909, operated as a general law city with a city administrator until November 1995. Following a special election, the citizens voted to have Boerne become a home rule city with a council-manager plan of government.
The city is governed by the City Council, which is composed of five council members elected for staggered two-year terms. The mayor and two council members are elected in odd-numbered years. Three council members are elected in even-numbered years. The five council members are elected by the district in which they reside and the mayor is elected by the city at-large. Single-member voting districts (PDF) were adopted in 2009. Background on the change from at-large to single-member districts (PDF) is available online.
The City of Boerne provides many services to the public including, but not limited to:
Gas, electric, and water treatment and distribution
Parks, city facilities, and the Boerne Cemetery
Police and fire protection
Roads and streets
Sewage collection and treatment
Various other services authorized by the City Council
