D efinitely, you’ll never find another place like
O ur own Double Oak.
U ndoubtedly, we live in the best place in the world,
B ecause our people are friendly, generous, kind,
L ikely, it’s because of the beauty found
O f course, several stately twin oaks at Cedarcrest
A ccentuate this notion, and the
K illdeer call to their own at dawn and dusk.
W hy would anyone miss our Fourth of July parade?
O utrageous floats, Scouts marching, fire trucks blaring as
M ost residents line the streets, catching candy.
E xtending hospitality is what so many do so well,
N eighbors know their neighbors.
S mall-town values like community and cooperation are the norm.
C hildren still catch fish in well-stocked ponds.
L ife is never perfect, but it’s so very nice
U nder the sun, under the moon in our
B eloved Double Oak.
INCORPORATED ON May 25, 1974 with 164 people, the Town of Double Oak was the realization of J.F. Brittain’s dream of starting a town.
J.R. Griswald was elected our first Mayor on June 29, 1974. Succeeding him were Weldon Word, Tony Horvath, Richard Simmons, Bob Greer, Bernie Carrico, Chuck Bimmerle, Alan Johnson, Jay Wood, Rick Braud, Malcom Nordstrom, Jim Handzel, Richard Cook, Bill Wilkinson, Richard Cook, Pam King, Mike Donnelly, and Tom Pidcock. Our current Mayor is Mike Donnelly.
Today, Double Oak is a volunteer town of approximately 3,218 people. At this publishing, our town tax rate is 0.22481 per $100 valuation (Denton County is currently 0.2498 per $100). Bartonville, Copper Canyon, and Flower Mound border Double Oak.
The annual election for town council is held on the second Saturday in May. Our community consists of a mayor, five councilpersons (all unpaid, elected positions), two town secretaries, a court clerk, a full–time police chief, six full-time police officers, a code enforcement official, a Volunteer Fire Department, and the Double Oak Women’s Club.
