The application period closed at 5 p.m. Monday. To qualify for a council seat, the applicant has to be a registered voter of Flower Mound, be at least 21 years old, have been a town resident for at least one year, not be employed by the town, and hold no other public office.
The October 20 resignation of Rountree from the Flower Mound Town Council was officially accepted at last Friday night’s special meeting. Rountree was serving his first term on council after being sworn in this past May.
The town council is expected to appoint a new council member to Place 1 to fulfill the remainder of a first-year, unexpired term this Saturday.
“The interviews for applicants will be televised and begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31, and then the council members will deliberate and hope to appoint someone by noon,” said Flower Mound Mayor Tom Hayden.
“We’d like to have someone ready to fill that seat at the next council meeting (on Monday, Nov. 2).”
