The Ethics Review Commission was established by ordinance by the City of Boerne. Its members:

  • Review complaints regarding possible ethics violations;
  • Conduct investigations and hearings regarding possible ethics violations; and
  • Report findings and make recommendations regarding sanctions to the City Council regarding ethics violations.


The Ethics Review Commission meets once per year when appointments are made and holds special meetings to address complaints as they arise.

The mayor appointments each member and a chairman with approval from City Council. Members elect a vice chairman and secretary for the commission. Members must reside within the city limits.
