Citizens Demand Answers from Lubbock Central Appraisal District

The Lubbock Central Appraisal District is asking for an 8.3% increase in its budget, and many Lubbock citizens demand to know why.

"I think its time the board acted and got this thing under control," said one citizen.

50 citizens filled the Lubbock Central Appraisal District on Tuesday morning to protest the request. The citizens don't understand why the district needs a budget increase when they the taxpayers are paying more in taxes each year.

"When you drive values like what you're doing, and what it's costing us, that's why we're on the verge in cities across Texas," said Lubbock City Councilman Gary Boren. "We ain't going to take it anymore, we've had it!"

The Central Appraisal District says the budget increase is necessary to add two additional appraisals to help meet a growing workload. The board will vote on the budget September 14th.
