Lubbock City Council Posts Budget

What was expected to take up to three days, took less than 30 minutes Tuesday morning.

In a 7-0 decision, the Lubbock City council agreed on a proposed $93-million budget. In the budget, the council agreed to lower the tax rate by 1.34 cents.

The move is in response to a skyrocketing increase in property tax values. The proposed budget also adds four fire-fighters, so the department can comply with the two in two out policy. It also adds five new police officers to the city police force.

Council did however, agree to eliminate two city budget and research analysts to save $100,000.

The budget must go to a hearing in September before it can be passed.
