In 1987 Boyle was recalled from the mayor's office but returned to public office ten years later when he was elected to the Douglas County Board.

Boyle was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year and was unable to attend several recent board meetings.

He served as mayor from 1981 until the recall six years later.
