4-1-20 City Opens Fee Comment Period through April

The City of Killeen has published the proposed fee schedule to take effect in Fiscal Year 2021 which begins October 1, 2020. The fee schedule includes rates for a variety of services such as recreation leagues, City facility rentals and building permits among others. The fees are available for public review and comment through April 30.

City Council adopted Financial Governance Policies to set forth standards for all facets of fiscal management. One of those standards relates to the setting of user fees. While Council is responsible for setting utility rates, the body has delegated the authority to set most user fees to the City Manager.

The policy states that all user fees will be reviewed annually to calculate cost recovery, to compare charges to benchmark cities and to recommend adjustments. It further states that the City Manager will publish proposed fees by the end of March preceding the start of each new fiscal year.

The fee schedule is presented as a spreadsheet divided by service area. Each type of fee is noted and shows the current charge and the proposed charge. Notable changes to the proposed schedule are the removal of duplicate fees throughout and revisions to planning and development fees to comply with new state laws.

The public is encouraged to review the proposed fee schedule and to provide comments to the City by April 30. The schedule is available at KilleenTexas.gov/Finance and comments can be emailed to budget-team@killeentexas.gov.
