It appears the City of Lubbock is not getting the amount sales tax revenue it expected which could mean cutbacks in the budget.
In a letter NewsChannel 11 obtained from Bob Cass to the city council, Cass says the sales tax revenue in October of this year was more than $120,000 lower than the previous year. The letter also says revenue was down for three consecutive months this year. Cass wants the council to consider budget cuts and keeping certain jobs vacant until further notice.
The issue will be addressed in the January 8th, 2003 city council meeting agenda.
