Loosening Government Grip on Water and Sewer Department

It would be managed like Lubbock Power and Light and there would have to be another election to separate the water and sewer department from the city. The city council is considering appointing a Board of Directors to handle the day-to-day operations, rather than the city management staff.

Councilman Gary Boren says with water and sewer rates increasing, and missed opportunities to secure future water, he says it is time to put better management in place. "We can not afford any more critical mistakes because management doesn't know what the big picture on what's taken place with our water," said Boren.

The council will review all aspects of the separation to see how it will benefit taxpayers.
