The Killeen City Council will not meet at its regularly scheduled time Tuesday due to the New Year’s holiday.
The council’s next scheduled meeting is a workshop session at 5 p.m. Jan. 9.
The agenda and location of the workshop session will available Friday at killeentexas.gov.
The city is expected to hold a series of discussions at coming workshops surrounding a potential bond referendum on the May 5 ballot to help pay for road infrastructure tied to the Killeen school district’s possible $426 million bond issue.
The city has said a possible bond would, at minimum, cover four road projects surrounding a planned sixth high school to be located on Chaparral Road near Featherline Road.
The four projects, with current construction estimates, include:
Expansion of Chaparral Road from two to five lanes — $21.5 million
Expansion of East Trimmier Road south of Stagecoach Road from two to five lanes — $7 million
Expansion of West Trimmier Road between Stagecoach and Chaparral roads from two to five lanes — $7.9 million
Expansion of Featherline Road between Stagecoach and Chaparral roads from two to five lanes — $9 million
The total cost for all four projects — the baseline principal amount for a proposed bond — is $45.6 million.
The bond proposal, if needed, must go up for council approval before it is placed on the May ballot. The deadline to submit the bond paperwork is Feb. 16.
