The Killeen City Council will consider calling for a May 5 election Tuesday that will add two amendments to the City Charter.

The two amendments will focus on fund transfer authority in the city budget and cleaning up budgeting processes for capital improvements projects. The city is planning on a public information campaign for the amendment election, which require majority voter approval for ratification.

The council will also consider calling for at-large City Council and mayoral elections May 5. The council will have three at-large seats up for election, currently held by Councilmen Jonathan Okray, Juan Rivera and Gregory Johnson.

The only seat guaranteed to see a new face is that held by Okray, who will be terming out of the council after six years.

Rivera, among a group of 10 who have announced for the council race, filed for re-election Friday.

Incumbent Mayor Jose Segarra is among three who have filed for the mayoral race.

The filing deadline for the municipal elections is Friday.
