New Boerne City Hall Project
Construction on the new Boerne City Hall has started! This facility will house over 10 departments, and will serve as the Boerne Utilities Headquarters and Boerne City Council Chambers.
On June 12, 2018, City Council received the guaranteed maximum price from Lee Lewis Construction, the Construction Manager at Risk for the new City Hall project. City Council approved the guaranteed maximum price of $18,765,609, and issued a notice to proceed with construction with a 5-0 vote in favor. Construction will begin in late June 2018.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on May 10, 2018. Watch a highlight video of the ceremony here.
