More major financial changes are on the way for Lubbock's city hall. The city is facing a $10-million shortfall and interim city manager Tommy Gonzalez is looking to do a number of things to balance the budget:
Gonzalez says the city is not in good financial shape because it won't be receiving its $7 million cut from Lubbock Power and Light. LP&L is in the hole too, after absorbing high natural gas costs and not passing the cost to the customer. Also, uncovered money mismanagement is to blame as well. Gonzalez says he'll present his preliminary plan to the city council later this month.
