Christmas Light Recycling
As you prepare for holiday decorating, the City of Buda is here to help you get rid of any old, broken, or unwanted Christmas Lights! From now until Friday, Jan. 10, you can drop off your Christmas lights in a box/container or bundled up for recycling. Please drop off the lights outside the Buda Public Library entrance inside the Municipal Building located at 405 E. Loop St. We have provided a plastic drop-off bin just outside the library entrance. Hopefully, this will help organize your decorations and start off the new year while being environmentally friendly!

Creates Natural Habitat For Wildlife
In Detention Ponds

City of Buda Water System Receives Superior Rating From TCEQ
The City of Buda’s Water System recently received high marks from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Through the hard work of the City’s Public Works operations and Engineering Professionals, the City has been designated a ‘Superior’ Public Water System by the TCEQ. To earn this designation, a system must meet and maintain a higher set of standards than are required of all public water systems.

Scam Alert
Fraudulant Job Postings
The City of Buda has been made aware of a scam involving someone posting fraudulent City of Buda job openings. A recent fraudulent post went up on ‘Indeed’ for a front desk receptionist position asking applicants to send a cover letter and resume to HRBuda@outlook.com. This is not a legitimate City of Buda job opening. The posting has since been taken down by Indeed.
