Vaughan Appointed to Serve on City Council

Councilmember James Vaughan

West Lake Hills, Texas, November 10, 2022 — James Vaughan was unanimously appointed to serve the balance of the remaining term for City Council Place 1 last evening. The term expires in May 2023.

The City Council vacancy was created upon the resignation of former City Councilmember Rhonda McCollough. Her resignation was accepted by the City Council on October 26. Ms. McCollough stated in her letter to Mayor Anthony that “It has been an honor to serve the City for the last six years, and I am grateful for the very special opportunity to work with my fellow Council members, and grateful as well for your leadership as Mayor.”

The City Council’s request for applicants yielded two applicants, Vaughan, and Randy Lee. 

Councilmember Vaughan was sworn in last evening following the action of the City Council and vacates his seat on the Zoning and Planning Commission (ZAPCO) immediately. The City is now soliciting eligible residents to serve the balance of his term on ZAPCO and will be accepting applications through 5 PM on November 21, 2022.

Mayor Linda Anthony stated that the City Council was grateful for the opportunity of getting to know Rhonda, especially for her contributions to the budgeting process and employee manual among other projects.

Councilmember Vaughan will join the City Council at their next meeting on November 22, 2022. He is from Austin but has resided in West Lake Hills since 2018 and holds degrees from Stanford and the University of Texas at Austin.

The City of West Lake Hills, incorporated in 1953, is a unique and pleasant place in which to live. Its very special quality is derived chiefly from its rugged terrain, beautiful views, dense foliage, unspoiled creeks, and large areas of relatively low population density.
