The Harker Heights City Council is composed of five Council members and a Mayor, all elected at large. Either the Mayor and one Council member or two Council members are elected by a majority vote every year.
Council members represent the city as a whole, as there are no special districts or wards. Terms are three years, and no one may serve in the same position for more than two consecutive terms without a one year absence.
The City Council and Mayor set the policies of the city, approve the budget, enact ordinances, and direct and hire the City Manager, City Attorney and City Judges.
The City of Harker Heights provides water and wastewater services; trash pickup; road and street services; police, fire and EMS services; a library; and parks and recreation services.
The Council currently meets at 5:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month in the City Hall, 305 Miller’s Crossing. For more information call City Hall (254) 953-5600 or visit www.harkerheights.com for the latest agendas and updates.
