HARKER HEIGHTS - The City Council will decide the speed limit on Stillhouse Lake Road at a 5 p.m. meeting today.
The Texas Department of Transportation proposed speed reduction from Prospector Trail to the second entrance of Skipcha 23 Subdivision.

The reduction will reduce the speed from 60 to 50 miles per hour in the area, according to city documents.
