Committee Application Process

Texas Township welcomes residents willing to make a commitment to their community by serving on a commission, committee or board. We accept committee member applications throughout the year regardless of a current vacancy. As vacancies arise, we review each application on file to select the best candidate for that position.

2023 Vacancies: To apply for a current or upcoming 2023 vacancy, please submit your completed application form to the township by November 15. Appointments will be made by the Township Board at the December 12 meeting.

Once you have completed your application, please submit it to the attention of the Township Superintendent.
