City Set to Announce Library Funding Plan Thursday

The city's decision on how to fund the George W. Bush Presidential Library will have to wait until Thursday.

The committee to bring the library to Lubbock is asking City Council for $50 million to aid in its effort. A special council committee was scheduled to make its funding recommendations Wednesday, but had to postpone until Thursday. Councilman Jim Gilbreath says the city does have a plan and it does not include a tax increase.

"The monies that will be used to fund the George W. Bush Library will come only from new growth and also through some money from Market Lubbock," said Gilbreath.

The funding committee will announce the details of their plan Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. at City Hall.
