Wow, it is already October, where has the year gone? Fall arrived in the usual Texas style with 90 degree temperatures. Hopefully cooler weather will not be far behind.
We continue to work diligently to make the needed changes to the Comprehensive Development Plan (Comp Plan) to bring it in line with the desires of the citizens. We plan on having a draft of this plan on October 17th and will be presenting it to the citizens for their input.
I mentioned having a Town Hall meeting earlier in the year and we now have it scheduled for Saturday, October 21st at 9 a.m. It will be held in the community room at town hall. We plan on going over the changes to the Comp Plan as well as a couple of other subjects if time permits. This is only the beginning as we plan on having a Town Hall meeting at least twice a year or more if needed. Many, if not all, of the council members will be present as well as other town officials. We want to be able to present as much information as possible.
Starting November 4th at 9 a.m. at our Town Hall, I will be starting “Morning Coffee with the Mayor”. This will include coffee, donuts and Me! I know coffee and donuts are much more exciting than me but I want to be available to meet and spend time with as many of our citizens as possible. So, hopefully the donuts will be a bonus! I will be continuing these Saturday get-togethers on the first Saturday of every month from now on. I look forward to this opportunity to spend time with everyone in this informal setting.
Many of you may not know that we have a prominent Rodeo Cowboy right here in Argyle. He is presently ranked 2nd in the world in the Mini Bar-Back Tour and will be going on to the Las Vegas National Rodeo Finals in December where we have no doubt he will be a World Champion. Who is this cowboy you might ask? He is none other than Lealond Henderson. This young man has an amazing talent as well as a huge personality. At 9-years-old this month, he has a work ethic and discipline beyond most adults. Let’s wish him luck in the upcoming championship.
However you celebrate the upcoming holiday, please have fun, be safe and call me if you have any extra candy!
