The Killeen City Council will consider proposals for outsourcing solid waste services in a workshop session Tuesday.

The City Council has received four proposals and will have completed its evaluation process by the workshop, according to the council’s agenda. A presentation will be made by City Manager Ron Olson.

The council will also discuss resident donations to the senior citizen utility bill assistance program, animal services and the youth summer program.

The purpose of the policy is to establish a process for the city to accept monetary donations through utility bills, and a procedure for distribution of those funds, according to the agenda.

In addition, the council will consider authorizing the procurement of a fire engine for the fire department. The engine currently being used is a 17-year-old reserve engine with 143,000 miles.

The council’s workshop is at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Utility Collections conference room, 210 West Avenue C. | 254-501-7553

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
