The Boise City Council is the legislative body for Boise City with policy setting and budgetary authority.
During the 2020 legislative session, the State passed a bill (HB413) requiring cities with populations over 100,000 people to create districts for City Council elections. The Boise City Council consists of three at-large council members: Council Member Bageant and Council Member Hallyburton, both elected in 2019, and Council Member Nash, appointed in 2023. Additionally, there are three district council members: Council Member Willits elected in 2021 representing District 1, Council Member Haney Keith, who was appointed in 2023 and represents District 3, and Council Member Meredith Stead, who was appointed in 2023 and represents District 5.
In 2023, all six council districts will be up for election using a map that will be updated using the 2020 census data. In 2023, odd-numbered districts will run for four-year terms and even-numbered districts will run for two-year terms. Learn more about council districts.
Boiseans can be proud to live in one of America’s most successful cities. That success has many benefits including diversity, vibrancy and a strong local economy.
