Citizens encouraged to attend charter reform meetings


LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It's your city and you should help remake its basic foundation. That's how Lubbock City Councilman John Leonard feels about reforming the city charter.

Leonard and Councilman Paul R. Beane are hosting two meetings next week to get public input. Leonard says his number one goal in charter reform is getting protection for Lubbock Power and Light.

"I want to lock it, codify it, in the charter so that future councils can't steal from it as they have in the past. That's my number one goal in the whole process is to give some protection," said Leonard.

You're invited to the two charter reform meetings on Monday, January 11th, at 6 p.m., in the Whiteside Elementary library at 7508 Albany Avenue and January 12th, at 6 p.m., in the Honey Elementary School cafeteria at 3615 86th Street.
