WTMPA Audit is Released

The audit of the WTMPA was released on Thursday.

It points out a total lack of contract management by both WTMPA and the city of Lubbock. That includes unauthorized financial decisions that resulted in the resignation or retirement of three city officials: former Assistant City Manager Debre Forte, Former Councilman Ty Cooke and former LP&L Director Paul Thompson.

The audit also says that the WTMPA has been treated as just another department of the city of Lubbock instead of an independent power agency. The committee does point out that this audit never uncovered any criminal action by anyone.

The city council will discuss the more than 80 page document in a special city council meeting next Thursday.
