Budget Posting Error:   Change to City Budget Agenda and Public Hearings

It has come to the City’s attention that we failed to post a required budget document on the City’s website.  While the document in question was fully published in the Killeen Daily Herald, internally the City failed to post it to our website.  As your City Manager, the buck stops with me and I apologize that the posting was not done correctly on our website. 

Due to the failure to post this document and State requirements, the new budget schedule is as follows:

Monday, September 27, 2021, at 5 p.m. at City Hall

Public Hearing on Budget and Budget Adoption

Approval of the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Rates and Charges

Ratifying the Property Tax Increase reflected in the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Budget

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 (placed on the regular Council Meeting Agenda which begins at 5 p.m.)

Public Hearing on the Tax Rate and Adoption

We have placed certain checks in our system to ensure that all required budget documents are posted correctly in the future.  The City’s Vision Statement reads providing public services that empower people to focus on what matters most:  their goals, hopes and dreams.  Our Vision was set on the horizon as it is not a destination, we will fall short at times, but it is something that we will always strive for.  In this process we failed to live up to our Vision.  We will learn from it and improve our processes moving forward.
