Argyle town leaders want residents to consider serving the community by volunteering to serve on boards and commissions.

These boards and commissions can provide input and recommendations that can aid the Argyle Town Council, a news release states. The filling of the vacancies on these boards and commissions requires Town Council approval.

Residents interested in a position on a board or commission must complete a board and commission application online or stop by the town secretary's office at Argyle Town Hall to complete and submit an application. The process will include an interview by Town Council as well as a background check.

Current vacancies are listed below. For more information, residents can call the town secretary's office at 940-464-7273 or email Assistant Town Secretary Candi Smith at [email protected].

A Crime Control & Prevention District board has been appointed and will be approved by council at the Aug. 21 council meeting, said Town Administrator Erika McComis. The remaining boards of Planning and Zoning, Municipal Development District and Financial Oversight Committee will be appointed during September/October after the open application period closes at the end of August, she said.
