The Killeen City Council didn’t just pass its budget and tax rate last week. It also picked winners and losers.

It wasn’t a direct exchange, but the council axed $335,000 in additional money for the regional transit system — The Hop — while creating a $379,000 contingency fund to cover the cost of sewer repairs for homeowners who experience a break in the lateral line between the street and their homes. | 254-501-7543
