City Council

To the Residents of Boise:

We are with you in this unprecedented health emergency and emerging economic crisis. We share your anxiety, your uncertainty, and your concern about the challenges we are now facing. We love Boise and its people. That means you. We love the welcoming nature of our community and we love that we work together to find the innovative and creative solutions that will help us calm our anxiety and answer our uncertainty.

We will express our collective compassion in those solutions, and we give you our word that each of us will work tirelessly to bring our city through this with unity and in a way that builds on the ties that bind us. We are committed to strengthening our community, to lifting all up, and to offering everyone a chance to succeed as we recover from this crisis. If we do this the Boise way, we’ll come through it stronger than ever.

We know that the actions taken to protect our community health over the past few months have had a tremendous impact on businesses and people’s lives. They are not taken lightly.

We continue to be in contact with our congressional delegation asking for their continued support for individuals, small businesses and our community. We continue to work within our community to take care of our most vulnerable populations, look for innovative ways to encourage economic recovery, and continue to monitor public health.

As always, we want your feedback. Please keep sending your suggestions and comments. Since we can’t lend a shoulder, we can at least lend an ear and a sometimes a hand. These mandates and guidelines will undoubtedly change as the situation progresses and our information improves. For up-to-date information, please continue to check the City of Boise’s COVID-19 page, watch for continued updates here and follow council members on social media for our individual thoughts and updates.

The City of Boise has a strong Mayor-Council form of government in which the Mayor acts as the city executive, overseeing day-to-day operations of the city, while the six-member City Council serves as the legislative body with policy setting and budgetary authority. 

Council Members are elected at-large by popular vote of all of the residents of the City of Boise. While they are elected to a particular seat, those seats are not determined geographically. The offices of both mayor and city council are non-partisan and elections are held in odd-numbered years.

Council Meetings

Regular meetings of the City Council are held on the third floor of City Hall every Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. except on the fourth Tuesday of each month, when the meeting begins at noon.
