Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Boerne has revoked all special event permits and facility use agreements through the end of March and canceled several city-sponsored events.

The move comes amid concerns about the COVID-19 virus. At the bottom of this article is an updated and running list of events that have been canceled or postponed.

City leadership also made the decision to close City Hall and Utilities, the Patrick Heath Public Library, Parks and Recreation Office, Boerne Animal Shelter and the Visitor’s Center to all guests.

Meanwhile, Boerne Municipal Court is rescheduling its dockets.

Those needing to conduct business at City Hall will be able to schedule appointments in advance with the respective office/department. Anyone showing symptoms of illness will not be allowed, at the medic’s discretion.

Appointments will be available from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. NO WALK-INS will be allowed.

Those needing to pay their utility bill can do so online or by dropping it off in the deposit box in the parking lot.

Anyone with questions can call Boerne Utility customer service at 830-249-9511.

At the library, exterior spaces will be open to access WiFi. Library staff will be available via text at 830-308-4606 or people can call the library Monday through Friday during regular hours at 830-249-3053. Fines will not accrue during this time and due dates may be extended. All programming has been suspended until March 30.
You can also conduct library business on the app, PhDigital.

Patrons may place reserves on items online and upon notification that the items are ready, drive to the library where a staff member will deliver curbside. This service is available Monday—Thursday 9 a.m. -7 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Please drop off your items at our drive through bookdrop and check out our many online resources.

At Municipal Court, those previously scheduled to appear before Judge Phillips on March 18, April 1, April 15, or May 6, 2020, will receive a written notice from the Court advising you of the new date, and time of your hearing, or trial.

Those who received a citation and have not contacted the court, they must still let the court know how they want to resolve the citation by the initial appearance date that is listed on the citation.

In many instances, people can resolve their citation without having to appear in person by calling 830-248-1504, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. or emailing  courtstaff@ci.boerne.tx.us
