LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock City Council approved an interlocal agreement allowing the Lubbock County District Attorney and the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office limited access to the Lubbock Power & Light customer database.

Councilwoman Latrelle Joy argued that the information is already available by subpoena and for that reason the council should reject the agreement.

The council amended the agreement approved by LP&L by striking electric usage from the information available to the entities. Under the amended agreement the information available is name, address and telephone number only. The amended agreement was approved 4/3.

The council voted a second time to approve the budget. The council budget included funding almost five million dollars in capital improvements through cash rather than debt. The vote was 7-0 to approve the budget and tax rate of $0.53802 / $100 value which is a 3.88% increase in tax revenue.

The second reading of the zoning change for former mayor Glen Robertson's proposed firing range was approved 6-1.
