The Killeen City Council will discuss creating a committee to help implement builder “impact fees” to pay for infrastructure around new development at its workshop today.

The council will consider appointments to the long-awaited Capital Improvements Advisory Committee, a state-mandated committee tasked with determining the boundaries and rules for the implementation of impact fees assessed on new building permits.

The council provided direction to begin accepting applications for the committee in August 2017.

By statute, the committee must have a minimum of five members. Forty percent of the members must be members of the real estate, development, or building industry, and at least one member must reside in an extraterritorial jurisdiction.

In other business, the Killeen council will consider authorizing the purchase of fitness equipment for the Lions Club Park Senior Center. A proposed equipment purchase from Marathon Fitness is valued at $56,517.

The workshop will be held 4 p.m. today in the Utility Collections Conference Room, 210 W. Avenue C. | 254-501-7567
