– Mayor David Bieter

Holiday Festivities


It's the most wonderful time of the year! There are several events, classes and concerts happening around the city to get you and your family in the holiday spirit.

Energy Future


Cities across the United States and around the world are establishing goals to address climate change issues, reduce energy use or transition to renewable energy sources. Boise has initiated a planning process called “Boise’s Energy Future” to consider the adoption of similar community-wide goals.

Greenbelt Repairs


The Boise Parks and Recreation Department will be completing a number of construction projects along the Boise River Greenbelt and adjacent river bank over the coming months. This repair work is being completed following the historic flooding that damaged or eroded a number of sections in 2017. 

Property Taxes

Property taxes help pay for services and amenities for all Boiseans. These functions include public safety such as police and fire services, open space management and libraries. The County Treasurer and Tax Collector collects all property taxes for cities, school districts and specialist districts within the county.
