The Killeen City Council is expected to reach a consensus today on which amendments it will place on the ballot for the May 11 charter election.

The special meeting will start at 5 p.m. today at the Utility Collection Building, 210 W. Avenue C.

City attorneys also will update the council on the proposed organization of the ballot, including groupings of amendments into streamlined propositions.

After four public hearings in January, the council has added several new proposals to the charter ballot, including a requirement that the director of finance be a certified public accountant.

A copy of the charter with all of the proposed amendments — updated Thursday — is available at
