City Begins Strip Annexation Process

Alcohol sales could soon benefit the City of Lubbock's budget.  Thursday, council members passed a resolution to start the process of annexing the area on the Tahoka Highway known as the strip. 

The City would receive sales tax revenue and property tax revenue from the strip of beer and liquor stores.  Mayor David Miller estimates the strip could bring up to half a million dollars a year in sales taxes and $33,000 in property taxes every year.  But nothing is official yet.  It's a 90 day process where business owners and residents will get the chance to voice their opinion.  It's important to note, the annexation of the strip would not make alcohol sales legal within Lubbock city limits.
