Lubbock might condemn and take property owned by Garza County

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Public records show that Lubbock will consider condemning property owned by Garza County if the two sides can't reach an agreement. The city council was scheduled to consider a number of condemnations on Friday but a specially called meeting was canceled to due bad weather.  Eight such condemnations are under consideration for Lubbock's pipeline to Lake Alan Henry. 

The city is not looking to buy the land but rather to secure an easement or right of way. Public records indicate the city might take by force eight rods of easement owned by Garza County, which would be 132 feet long. The city has been paying $85.00 per rod to landowners which is in some cases just barely above market value and in other cases three times higher than market value. 

Since the City Council meeting was postponed, negotiations are continuing behind the scenes.
