The city of New Braunfels is seeking residents to serve on the 2023 bond advisory committee ahead of a proposed bond election in May 2023.

Members of the committee will work with the city’s administration, finance and public works staff to create a prioritized list of projects to be considered for the bond.


Of the 24 members to be included in the committee, three at-large appointees will be selected from those who apply during an upcoming special meeting of the City Council.

The remaining 21 members will include:

  • One nonvoting chair appointed by New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman;

  • seven members who are appointed by members of the New Braunfels City Council;

  • Three members appointed by the Comal County Commissioners Court, Guadalupe Commissioners Court and the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce; and

  • 10 members appointed by various city boards and commissions.


“The work done by the Bond Advisory Committee will play a key role in helping City Council decide which projects to consider sending to residents for a vote,” New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman said in a press release. “It will be incredibly valuable for the BAC to represent a cross-section of experience and perspectives.”

Applications are available online and will be accepted through Oct. 30.
