HARKER HEIGHTS – As the city’s Fiscal Year 2014 budget proposal looms three weeks away, representatives of four local organizations Tuesday asked the city for funding.

HOP Director of Urban Operations Robert Ator requested more than $25,000 for bus operation and maintenance, and Friends of Texas A&M University-Central Texas Chairman Bobby Hoxworth requested $50,000 for scholarships.

Additionally, Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce President John Crutchfield asked for funding for a solar energy test project on the A&M-Central Texas campus, and Boys and Girls Club Resource Development Director Francie Charles asked for $50,000.

The council is tentatively scheduled to review a proposed fiscal 2014 budget July 30, and adopt one on Sept. 3.
