Doug Hunt, owner of Access Self Storage and Truck Rental, is running for re-election to the Ovilla, Texas, City Council. The six-year veteran of the council believes the city is poised for growth during the next five years.
“Ovilla is ripe for continued improvements in infrastructure,” he told the source. “Over the past six years, I have spearheaded efforts to improve the roads in our city. We are proud to have resurfaced more roads in that time than in the decade prior. Continuing that endeavor remains at the top of my list of goals.”
Hunt also cited a recent annexation of land to develop a new elementary school and three residential subdivisions, as well as a highway-widening project, as indicators of the city’s health.
In addition to his seat on the council, Hunt also works with the Ovilla Service League, a city fundraising group, and has coordinated Ovilla Heritage Day for the past five years. He has previously served on the board of directors for Best Southwest, a coalition of local cities, and was the Ovilla representative on the North Ellis County Coalition of Cities, according to the source.
“Ovilla is a beautiful city with a vibrant future,” Hunt said. “In this upcoming election, we once again have the opportunity to vote experience into office and to keep Ovilla on a thriving path.”
In 1972, Hunt opened the first Access Self Storage in Garland, Texas, with his father, Bill Hunt. The company currently operates six storage facilities in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex and is looking to expand, according to its website.
