The Harker Heights City Council will discuss stop sign changes at a 5 p.m. meeting today.

Public Works Director Mark Hyde will lead a public hearing discussing several stop sign changes before the council decides which signs may go and what intersections may see the added signage.

A total of 11 stop-sign additions and three removals are proposed. A no-parking sign also is proposed for Farm-to-Market 2410 near the Mickey's store on the corner of Farm-to-Market 2410 and Central Texas Expressway.

"All the new ones are recommendations from our police department," Hyde said.

"It has gone to each intersection and conducted a traffic study at each one."

The possible stop-sign additions includes a sign for Flat Rock Cove, Rummel Road, Flint Oak Drive, Welch Cove and Oakmont Circle, adding two signs at Orlan Drive, Cayuga and Silver Creek Drive to create four-way stops.

The possible removals include signs at Rocky Ridge Trail, Silver Creek Drive and Magnolia Drive.

Several presentations from residents are scheduled today.

The presentations include issues concerning smoking around pool areas, a military building on Farm-to-Market 2410 and the need to clean up behind it, and the Wildewood assessment interest.

The council also will discuss and decide the following:

A conditional-use permit for 1909 Forest Hills.

Whether Harker Heights should participate in the ATMOS Cities Steering Committee.

An ordinance for the Steering Committee to negotiate with ATMOS Energy.

A resolution amending the city's investment policy.

Naming of the walking trail in FM 2410 the Community Park Kyle Hilliard Trail.

Creating a policy for revision of naming municipal facilities.

The City Council meets in the Kitty Young Council Chamber in City Hall, 305 Miller's Crossing.
