Deciding the Future Direction of the Bergheim VFD

The Bergheim VFD is working to keep up with the growth in eastern Kendall County. As a next step, we are proposing that an Emergency Services District (ESD) be established for this service area. ESD’s, common in Texas, provide a sustainable funding source for an area. An ESD will address critical needs required to better serve our expanding community.

Currently, we are asking for your help by signing a petition. This petition asks the Kendall County Commissioners to add the ESD on the November 2021 ballot for a public vote. At that election, the community will decide whether or not to establish an ESD. Volunteers are collecting signatures. Contact Chief Adam Hawkins of Bergheim VFD at 210-885-2406 if you would like to sign the petition and have not been approached.
