HARKER HEIGHTS - The Harker Heights City Council meets at 3 p.m. today at a workshop to discuss an update on the city's water master plan.

Harker Heights Public Works Director Mark Hyde said the discussion will surround the major water infrastructure projects within the city. Such projects include the 18-inch waterline that runs down Indian Trail, as well as the

1.5 million-gallon storage tank on Arrowhead Hill.

Hyde said they plan to "go over which project will be completed."

In a closed executive session, the council will also discuss the evaluation of City Manager Steve Carpenter.

Assistant City Manager Patty Brunson said during these closed sessions, the mayor usually appoints a committee of two members to "get the ball rolling" in evaluating the city manager.

She said such evaluations are done verbally or in writing, and that they can occur either annually or semiannually.

"There was not a written evaluation last year, but it was good," Brunson said.

Carpenter was appointed Harker Heights city manager in March 1994.

In addition, the council will discuss a presentation by the recreation superintendent regarding an update on the city's athletic programs.

The workshop is in the Kitty Young Council Chamber at 305 Miller's Crossing in Harker Heights.
