City Not To Charge Schools For Storm Water

The City of Lubbock will not charge schools, the county or state agencies for storm water protection. 

Councilman John Leonard said he did not want to give schools a free pass while homeowner and business rates went up, but one of the biggest objections was that schools have already set their budgets and would have a hard time coming up with the money.  Lubbock ISD, for example, would have to pay more than $80,000.

Thursday, the council approved raising residential storm water rates by $1 per month and commercial rates will go up nearly $7 per month.
