LP&L Task Force Given May Deadline

Separate Lubbock Power and Light from Lubbock City Hall and do it by May.

Last month Boren announced the idea to get LP&L back to its original mission of providing lower electric rates and helping to lower taxes. Boren wants to make LP&L a freestanding corporation and switch financial control from the city manager to a new board of directors. Boren says timing is critical and he would like to see a public vote to change city charter by the May 2004 elections.
