The Helotes City Council consists of a mayor and five council members. While each Council member is designated by a place number, the City is not divided into districts. Therefore, each Council member represents the citizenry at large.
Council members are elected by plurality, meaning the candidate with the most votes in each place is elected to office. Members of the City Council are elected to two-year terms on alternative years. The Mayor and Council Members Places 3 and 5 are elected during odd numbered years, while Council Members in Places 1, 2, and 4 are elected during even numbered years. Visit the Elections Page for more information on the next general election.
City Council meets on the second and fourth Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm. Meetings are held in the Council Chambers located inside City Hall, 12951 Bandera Road, Helotes, Texas 78023. Meetings are livestreamed and recorded for later playback on YouTube. Meeting agendas and YouTube links can be found on the Agendas & Meetings Page.
