City Slashes Jobs to Make up for Budget Shortfalls

In a follow up to a story NewsChannel 11 first told you about, Lubbock City Manager Tommy Gonzales has released the new organizational chart for the City of Lubbock. The new plan eliminates 25 positions and 17 people lost their jobs. This includes employees who hold management and professional positions.

Gonzales says the cuts will save the city nearly $1.6 million a year. Gonzales says he made the cuts because Lubbock Power & Light could not contribute $8 million into the city's general fund this year. LP&L is $12.8 million in debt and gonzales says that's not including the losses this year.
