Mackenzie Amphitheater Plans Postponed

The City of Lubbock says it doesn't have enough money to build the Mackenzie Amphitheater according to plan. So, the construction plans have been put on hold for another six months.

The city council voted to re-bid the project for a price of $2.3 million instead of $2.7 million. First because the city is short $450,000, and second, budget troubles at Lubbock Power and Light are contributing to the delay in plans.

This is a decision supported by both the city council and citizens who want the amphitheater. "I don't see any evil design on any one's (the city staff or the city council) part. I just see them as trying to get this to work properly," said Andy Wilkerson, for the construction of the amphitheater.

Re-bidding the project allows the city to either get the job done cheaper or find the $450,000 in private donations.

Right now, more than a million dollars of the amphitheater project is funded through private businesses.
