8-9-19 Utility Bills Now Reflect Street Maintenance Fee Charge

City of Killeen utility bills received in August reflect the charge of a new Street Maintenance Fee. This is a monthly fee that will now be applied to each bill.

Each single-family home is billed a Street Maintenance Fee of $1.70 per month. Other residential uses are charged a fee based on a single-family equivalent per dwelling unit. Non-residential properties are classified by use and the fee is calculated using a single-family equivalent per unit.

City Council adopted the Street Maintenance Fee in December with a July 1, 2019 effective date. The fee provides a dedicated funding source for maintaining public streets based on usage. All revenue collected is placed in a Street Maintenance Fund to be used solely for this purpose. Funding may not be used for road construction or reconstruction.

Mailed utility bills include a copy of City Insight newsletter with a front-page article explaining the new Street Maintenance Fee. There is also a message printed at the bottom of each statement explaining the charge. Detailed information on calculation of the fee and property classifications is available on the City’s website at KilleenTexas.gov/SMF.

City Council set aside $330,000 in the current year budget to begin addressing street maintenance in advance of fee collection. Maintenance is scheduled in October on a collection of streets in northeast Killeen identified as most in need of maintenance by a previous street condition assessment. Those streets are in the area of Rancier Avenue north to Westcliff Road and Cedarhill Drive east to Westcliff Road.

A new street condition study is underway to determine the current status of each street in Killeen. This updated information will help establish priority for scheduling future work. The results of the study will be available for public review when complete. Residents can expect to see projects completed in groupings of large, contiguous areas in summer months and preparation work for those projects the remainder of the year.
