Killeen City Manager Glenn Morrison will present the proposed 2014-2015 fiscal year budget to City Council during its 5 p.m. workshop meeting today in the Utility Collections conference room.

The budget will take effect Oct. 1, when the fiscal year begins.

In May, the city held its first step in the budgeting process with a public forum for residents to give city officials input in its development.

About two dozen residents attended the forum, with 10 giving input. The most widely requested attention was directed toward the city’s two senior centers with residents asking for computer updates, Wi-Fi, recreation equipment for sports and new furniture.

It also was requested that the city look into expanding the animal control facility to make it more efficient, an increase in the number of animal control officers and longer operating hours for the facility.

Increased Killeen Department patrols also were requested.

The budget being presented today is a draft. The public will have another opportunity to provide input during a public hearing Aug. 5.

The budget is scheduled for adoption Sept. 9.
