Serve Your Community! Get Involved!

The most effective way for citizens to become involved directly in governmental programs is to serve on one of our citizen boards or commissions. Citizen boards are not legislative bodies; the extent of their authority and power depends on state statutes and/or city ordinances or resolutions. If you are a qualified voter and have been a resident of the State of Texas and Frio County for at least one (1) year and resident of the City of Pearsall for at least six (6) months; and you are not in arrears in payment of any taxes or other liabilities to the City; and you are not a regular full-time employee of the City of Pearsall, then you are eligible to serve on one of several boards/commissions of the City. Interested citizens meeting these requirements may apply at the City to be considered for several boards and commissions. Call 830-334-3676 for application forms.
