On March 16, 2020, the Governor of Texas issued an order suspending various provisions of the Open Meetings Act, which now authorize the participation of a meeting by videoconference and/or teleconference. To comply with the public health goal of physical distancing, the City of Helotes will conduct future municipal board meetings by teleconference. Until further notice, no in-person input will be permitted. To speak remotely, registration must be done in advance by completing the Citizen Comment Form. The comment form is due by 12:00 p.m. on the meeting date. Forms will not be accepted after the deadline.
The City Secretary accepts applications from residents who are interested in participating on a municipal board or commission. If you reside within the corporate city limits of Helotes, and are interested in serving your community, fill out the Board/Commission Application.
