If your electricity bill is past due, this might be a really good time to take care of that.
The new collection fee of $15 was passed by the Lubbock City Council on Thursday. This fee applies only to delinquent accounts that involve bill collectors coming to the door. This is a new fee, one LP&L officials haven't charged in the past. They say it's necessary to collect lost revenue.
The fee will go into effect, May 1st.
