Lubbock Assistant City Manager Retiring

Deputy City Manager Debra Forte announced she is retiring Thursday. Forte has worked for Lubbock since 1995. In a prepared statement, Forte said she wanted to spend more time with her family. Forte played a key role in creating Market Lubbock Inc., the fire certification program, and enhancing police facilities and salaries.

A city source tells NewsChannel 11 Forte had recently come under scrutiny for her handling of issues related to the West Texas Municipal Power Agency. The city owned electric company LP&L recently loaned the WTMPA $5.3-million without City Manager Bob Cass' knowledge or approval. The WTMPA supplies Lubbock Power and Light with electricity. As Deputy City Manager, Forte had oversight of LP&L.
