The City of New Braunfels is a home-rule city under Texas State Law. The City was founded in 1845 under German charter. The City is governed by a seven-member council and has over 500 employees under the City Manager, Robert Camareno. The City has a number of local advisory committees, boards and commissions who make recommendations to the City Council regarding policies and the operation of several City departments.
Though much has changed from 1845 to today, the core principles set forth by the founders—hard work, progress, civic pride, and family devotion—have remained a steadfast way of life here. Join us in 2020 as we celebrate 175 years since our founding.
