Killeen Star Award, Citizen Petitions and Workshop at the Tuesday Council Meeting | Local News


Members of Killeen Town Council will have a lot to do on Tuesday evening as they hold votes on several agenda items and then move into a shop meeting after their regular meeting.

Prior to the start of the meeting, a council member will choose a Killeen resident and present him with the Killeen Star Award.

In regular session, the council will hear two citizen petitions. The first coming from Holly Teel, a former mayoral candidate, regarding the impact on the Long Branch area with the absence of a grocery store. The second will be from Bear Jones and will concern communication between the people of Killeen and the town’s police department.

Following citizen petitions, council will discuss in-kind services for a Juneteenth Event hosted by the Innovation Black Chamber of Commerce.

Thereafter, the board will vote on the following items as part of the consent agenda:

Approval of an inter-governmental support agreement with the United States government for animal care at Fort Hood.

Authorize an interlocal agreement with the Killeen Independent School District for the construction of a sewer line in the Trimmier Creek basin.

Award of Tender #22-20, Generator Project, to T. Morales Company Electric & Controls, Ltd. in the amount of $480,535.

Authorize the purchase of computer hardware from GTS Technology Solutions for an amount not to exceed $299,807.93.

Ratification of a meeting and discussion agreement with the Killeen Police Employee Association FOP Lodge 32.

After the consent agenda, council will then hold votes on the zoning applications heard last week.

Immediately following the regular meeting, the board will move into a workshop meeting where they will discuss including the National Mounted Warfare Foundation and Bell County Communications Center as community partners for their fiscal year 2022-2023 budget.

After discussion, council will conduct its annual review of the city’s governance standards and expectations.

The regular meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 101 N. College St.
