LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Thursday, April 9, the Lubbock City Council approved an amendment to the water and wastewater rate ordinances so that no customers would be billed at the new rates for water and wastewater services provided during March.
Under the amended ordinance, the water and wastewater rates will no longer be effective for the prior month's usage. The amended ordinance states that all bills dated on or after May 1 will have the new rate applied.
With the timely action of the City Council, Lubbock Power & Light was able to suspend the billing process so that all April bills would be processed using the old water and wastewater rates before they were sent to customers. No adjustments will be necessary to the April bills now going out to customers.
The action by LP&L to temporarily suspend billings will help to reduce confusion about the implementation of the new rates and eliminate the need to make adjustments to the water and wastewater bills during the month of April.
