Getting to Know Your New Lubbock County Commissioners

Like any job you spend a lot of time on the phone, answering questions, and finding solutions to problems. But Lubbock County Commissioners have a different vision with common interests: making Lubbock County better for all.

Two Lubbock County Commissioners are on a mission. Ysidro Gutierrez wants to build a new community facility for Idalou. "This center is over 70 years old and should be replaced," says Gutierrez.

Bill McCay wants to make Woodrow Road safer and have it ready by the end of the year. "We're going to widen that road and put a stripe down the middle of it," said McCay.

Judging from the number of phone calls they have received, both men can tell you it is an issue that continues to plague the county. "We're going to pave some roads that are dirt roads and we're going to try to do something, not gravel, but using crushed concrete," said McCay.

"Remember that grain elevator on 4th Street? We have all that material we can use," said Gutierrez.

Every day for the past month, McCay and Gutierrez are just using their ears to guide them. Taking it one step at a time.

Even though road improvements are a number one priority. Gutierrez says his challenge will be to entice people to move back to Precinct Three.
