Court refinances notes to save taxpayer money

In Monday's Commissioner's court meeting, the Court approved the refinance of series 2013 notes to a new interest rate of 1.59 percent, which will save the taxpayers approximately $75,000 over the life of the note.


The County and H-E-B entered into an agreement to allow the Killeen H-E-B to sell vehicle registration renewal stickers at their store. This agreement already includes the Temple and Belton locations, and primarily serves to reduce traffic at the annexes. Residents wishing to renew their registration need to bring their renewal notice to the store at the time of purchase. All license plate exchanges, however, must still go through the annex. The Harker Heights H-E-B is not a part of this agreement as of now. Parties hope that the Killeen H-E-B will be able to sell stickers by the end of the month now that this agreement has been approved.

The Court also approved the donation of a 5-ton truck/crane combo from Fort Hood for use during emergency procedures in times of high water or flooding.

They also announced that the Bell County Auction that took place on May 23 raised more than $10 million.
