Budgeting priorities to address serious financial concerns will be considered by the Killeen City Council at a workshop Tuesday.

Council members will review some of the most pressing fiscal problems the city faces, including some unaddressed or deferred for years, such as how to fund street maintenance.

Pay equity for city employees, the municipal retirement system and cost of living adjustments for retirees also will be reviewed.

General maintenance funding is expected to be discussed, and should take on proper budgeting city staff say is needed, according to memorandum.

Discussion on the proposed $426 million bond issuance by the Killeen Independent School District will come up, as well what the city will need to do to support school improvements.

In other business, the council will consider: redirecting $209,248 of federal grant funding from a canceled Girl Scouts project toward restroom and entry renovations at the Bob Gilmore Senior Center; an update from City Manager Ron Olson on bond refinancing; and revisions to Killeen Economic Development Corporation bylaws.
