The Double Oak Town Council will soon appoint a resident to join the council.
The seat became vacant when Ginger Brittain resigned last month because she was frustrated with town leadership “not willing to move the town forward” and not being transparent enough. She had just been sworn in to a two-year term in May.
After Brittain’s resignation, the Town Council decided to fill her unexpired seat by appointment, and opened a window for interested residents to apply. The deadline passed on Wednesday, and four residents have applied, according to a town news release: Von Beougher, a Board of Adjustments member; Tim Bologna, a Planning & Zoning Commission alternate member; Martha Holman, a Planning & Zoning commissioner; and Joe Rodriguez, a former Board of Adjustments member.
The Town Council will choose one of the applicants to join the council. It will take up the matter at the Aug. 5 Town Council meeting.
