City of Lubbock Approves Bond Election

On Wednesday, the Lubbock City Council approved a bond election . The proposed $29.9 million package would benefit four different categories within the city of Lubbock.

"There are a lot of street projects, where infrastructure is critical," said Phyllis Jones, Chairperson for the Citizens Advisory Executive Committee  "It's critical that we take care of the amenities that we have, and improve the parks the libraries, all of these are quality of life and if you don't have a bond election and if you don't pass bonds then a city can't move forward."

This election will be added to the May 15th ballot. A move that eliminated the need for a special election, and saved the city about $80,000.
