Waketon Road Project Commencing Soon
The Waketon Road widening and reconstruction contract has been approved by the towns of Double Oak and Flower Mound as well as Denton County, and construction is scheduled to begin this fall. The eastern portion of Waketon Road from Chinn Chapel Road easterly to Parksdale Drive will begin in September after Labor Day, and the western portion from Chinn Chapel Road westerly to Cross Timbers Drive/Kings Road in front of Double Oak Town Hall will begin construction late this year or early next year. Signage and erosion control measures may begin sooner, so please “Give them a Brake” and drive with extra caution in the construction zones.
2021-2022 Fiscal Year Budget and Tax Rate
The Town Council has begun to develop the budget for the next fiscal year. Double Oak’s tax rate is one of the lowest in Denton County (0.22910 per $100) and the town remains debt free. The town will hold a public hearing, adopt the budget, and set the tax rate in September. The new fiscal year begins October 1, 2021. Please contact town hall if you have comments or questions regarding the budget process.
