No decision yet on Godeke future

 LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The City Council went behind closed doors Thursday to discuss the expensive and sensitive issue of the Godeke Library. By law, the Council cannot tell us what happened in their Thursday executive session.

NewsChannel 11 has checked with outside sources and we can at least tell you conceptually how much the city might have to spend to fix Godeke. The library closed in late January, infested with mold. One idea is to lease 10,000 square feet of commercial space for the library. But in Southwest Lubbock that could cost 20 thousand dollars a month or more. Based on information from sources, it might be possible to rid the current building of mold for 100 thousand dollars or less. But that's just the start. The leaking roof has to be fixed, the inside remodeled and the foundation would have to be sealed since the building is near a playa lake. And, sealed foundations can fail.

The Council has not yet made any decisions.
