Lubbock Voters Approve Committee To Head LP&L

A panel of citizens will now make the operating decisions for Lubbock Power & Light.

The change is an amendment to an ordinance, Lubbock voters approved Tuesday. 83% of voters agreed on an ordinance that would create the electric utility board. A board is expected to do away with past financial problems and keep rates competitive.

"The exciting part about this is, is the citizens have taken control of their public utility company and what citizens will do, pretty much cut out the politics," says Lubbock City Councilman Gary Boren.

The board will be appointed by city council. In the meantime, customers may receive rebate checks once LP&L reserves are built back up.
