BUFFALO SPRINGS LAKE, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock County Water Control and Improvement District Number 1, the governing board of Buffalo Springs Lake, met with a standing-room-only crowd of concerned residents on Tuesday. One of the items discussed was an increase in gate admission prices.

During the meeting, residents expressed concern about a possible large fee increase. Board members dismissed the idea, saying there may be an increase; however, the $10 - $15 increase mentioned by some residents was an unsubstantiated rumor.
