Killeen: City launches map to help people understand street maintenance fees

By  | 

KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) The city of Killeen is making it easier for people and business owners to find out how much they will have to pay in street fees.

In December 2018, the city voted for everyone living within city limits to pay a fee to help repair the streets.

“Because it’s really going to improve the street maintenance we are able to offer our residents” city of Killeen communication director Hilary Shine said.

But starting July, home and business owners will have to pay the fee.
Each home, business and property’s fee will vary.

“If you live at my home address when I was a kid I can type that in today and find out it’s a single family home and it will be accessed a fee of $1.70” Shine said.

“But if I am HE B and have a much larger property then there is a calculation but we’ve done that work for you. So you can just go into the map and search by address or look on the map search on a parcel and find out what that fee is going to be.”

A simple way shine says will clear up any concerns customers might have.

“We think it will eliminate a lot of the questions people have and they may still not like having a fee applied but we will show them the results they are going to get” Shine said.
