Lubbock Spends More than $1.7 Million on Evacuees

Lubbock is calculating the costs of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The city spent $1.7 million sheltering Hurricane Katrina evacuees. Part of that money was used to pay staff that worked more than 8,000 hours of overtime.

Meanwhile, the estimated cost of housing Hurricane Rita evacuees will be more than $900,000. Emergency and city staff worked more than 8,350-hours of overtime during that relief effort. You'll recall the city opened shelters at Reese Technology Center and the Municipal Coliseum to house evacuees.

FEMA will reimburse all costs.
