LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week, some of your feedback from last week's commentary about the runaway fees being forced on Lubbock citizens.
Ann from Lubbock writes, "I agree with you 100%. I've been screaming about the way they decided to charge us for water for quite some time, and now they are increasing all the other items we can't live without. It's a travesty, but how can we stop it..."
Donny says, "...It seems the city is just making money off its citizens. I'm tired of it, but don't know what to do about it. "
This email came from Bill: "... I would advise those who voted for this legalized theft to keep their job, cause come next Election Day, they will need it."
Another viewer had to say this: "You are absolutely right in your criticisms of this aggressive fee increase scheme!! This word has to get out to the voting public in order to hold these politicians and bureaucrats accountable..."
Consider This: I've taken dozens of similar emails and the majority of folks are mad but aren't sure about what can be done. Well, start by knowing every City Councilperson voted to increase these fees, except for Councilman Paul Beane. So if you don't like how the other six voted, speak up. Call them, email them, and write them. Once they actually hear from the collective majority, maybe they will understand who has the real power, but I promise you, silence will only be interpreted as approval.
