Intergovernmental Relations Program

As directed by the City Council, the City of San Marcos participates in state and federal legislative processes by monitoring and advocating for or against policies to support, safeguard, protect and enhance the interests of residents and businesses.

The Intergovernmental Relations Program is guided by the core values found in the City Charter's Statement of Goals and the Comprehensive Plan Vision Statements. 

As part of the program, city representatives have visited the Texas State Capitol and Washington, D.C. They've also met with state and federal elected officials including U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, State Sen. Judith Zaffirini, and State Rep. Erin Zwiener.
