Special Election: To designate the three existing councilmember places 2, 4, & 6 to transition to single-member districts - District A, B, & C, pursuant to Buda City Charter Section 12.05(A)

​In November of 2017, voters approved an amendment to the City Charter for the City of Buda to transition to single-member districts. Buda City Council Places 2, 4, and 6 will be the first to switch from at-large to single-member districts. These Places are now assigned as District A (Place 4-Daugereau), District B (Place 6-Ture), and District C (Place 2-Hopkins). 

​At the June 5, 2018 City Council meeting, Council approved the district lines for Districts A, B, and C. These single member districts will be used as boundaries for electing City Councilmembers beginning with the November 2018 Election. Districts A, B, and C are up for election this year. The single-member district position District C shall carry a one-year term. The single-member district position District B shall carry a two-year term. The single-member district position District A shall carry a three-year term. A flow chart is available on the website for your convenience outlining the transition process of the single-member districts.
