Type of Government
The Town of Lakewood Village is a Type-A General-Law municipality incorporated under the laws of Texas in 1977. Five at-large council members and a mayor are elected to serve staggered two year terms. Elections for council seats one, three, and five occur in odd numbered years, with seats two, four, and the Mayoral election in even numbered years.
The Mayor acts as the Town’s chief executive and has primary responsibility for the oversight of the operations of the Town. The Town Council acts as the legislative body and has sole responsibility for adopting, amending and repealing Town ordinances and resolutions. The Mayor may cast a vote in the event of a tie.
The Council regularly convenes on the second Thursday of each month in public meetings to act in accordance with the published agenda. By statute, Council deliberations are restricted to topics specifically listed in the meeting agenda. However, citizens are welcome to comment on any issue or concern through the Visitor/Citizens Forum portion of the agenda. The meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall, 100 Highridge Drive.
