Utilities

The City of Bulverde does not own or operate any utility infrastructure or service. Therefore, these services are provided to the city's residents through 3rd party public and private entities.

Electric Service
Electric utility service is provided by San Antonio based City Public Service and Pedernales Electric Coop. While the city receives some compensation for the placement of utility poles and lines in the city's right-of-way, rates and other service fees are generally set by the governing boards of each utility.
Water Utility Service
Water utility services are provided to the residents of the city by Canyon Lake Water Service Company (CLWSC) and by Water Services, Inc. While the city receives some compensation for the placement of water lines within the city's right-of-way, rates for these services are set by negotiated rate settlement agreements between the city and the utilities.
Solid Waste Services
Solid waste services (trash pick-up) are provided within the city limits by Progressive Waste Solutions. The city selects the solid waste provider for city residents through a competitive bidding process every 5 years. The rates and other service charges for these services are established by a franchise agreement negotiated between the city and the service provider.

The city's current franchise agreement was executed in May of 2014, and provides most city residents with a rate reduction of approximately 17% compared to the immediately preceding contract.
