Alcohol & H1N1 prevention on Tuesday's agenda for Lubbock City Council

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Alcohol variances and H1N1-vaccines are on the agenda for Lubbock City Council this week.

The City of Lubbock will consider hiring a company that will give the H1N1-vaccine to children in public schools. The company up for consideration is NurseFinders, who will charge the city $40 an hour for registered nurses and $30 an hour for licensed vocational nurses. The city will use state money to distribute the H1N1-vaccine.  

The city is also expected to approve two alcohol variances, one close Texas Tech, and the other is near Cavazos Middle School.   Red Hana Restaurant is at 411 University, right across the street from Texas Tech's campus.   La Michoacana Meat Market at 2131 Clovis Road is almost 200 feet from Cavazos Middle School.  

Mayor Tom Martin says the meat market is more like a grocery store than a convenience store, so it's likely to get council support.
