The Lubbock City Council has approved a contract to finalize the naming rights of the Buddy Holly Museum. Buddy Holly's widow, Maria Elena Holly, has given Lubbock permission to use her late husband's name for the next 20 years. The contract cost the city $20,000.
Council members have also approved the contract to sell the historic Tara West house at 4th and Slide. Mike Haggard purchased the home at auction for $510. As part of the deal, he must now move the structure to a new location. The move will make way for the extension of Slide Road, north to Loop 289.
