LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock City Council approved 7-0 a zoning change to allow a gun store and shooting range at 1917 Texas Ave.

The range is owned by former mayor Glen Robertson. Many Lubbockites will remember this as formerly being the location of the former Scoggin Dickey car dealership.

Robertson answered questions from the council about safety issues. The former mayor expects this to be a $2.5 to $3 million investment and to employ eight to 10 people.

The council also approved continuing the present juvenile curfew ordinance.

The council announced a second Tax Rate public hearing will be held on Sept. 1 at 1:30 p.m. The council will vote at that meeting on the first reading of the tax rate. No vote was held at Thursday's meeting.

The proposed tax rate is to keep it at the current 53.802 cents per one hundred dollars value. This represents an actual increase of tax revenues of 3.88 percent while keeping the rate at the same level it was for the previous year.

The second reading will be Sept. 8 at 5:15 p.m.

The council reappointed Barry Orr to the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance (LEDA) board. New members Matt Bumstead and Susanne Kirby were appointed to the LEDA board of directors.
