City Council Election
The 2021 City election will be held on November 2 for the City Council Seats for District 1, 3 and 5.

Water Renewal Bond
On November 2nd, 2021, eligible voters in Boise will choose how to pay for critical improvements to our water renewal (sewer) system. There are two ways to pay for these improvements:
- Cash funding would require a significant rate increase right away. Ratepayers provide that source of funding through their every-other-month utility bill from the city.
- Issuing a bond would be keep rate increases more affordable and predictable
The funding for improvements only impacts your sewer utility bill, not property taxes.
