Staff working to maintain service levels and protect public health.

The City of Killeen has adjusted many of its services to protect employees and the public during the COVID-19 emergency. While continuing to provide essential services, we are doing our part to stop the spread by limiting person-to-person contact.

Most all municipal offices are closed to the public. Most services can be obtained by phone, email or web. In situations where a member of the public must enter a City facility, protocols are in place to create barriers or space for social distancing to minimize physical contact.
