Lubbock City Council Changes to Evening Meetings

Cole Shooter, KFYO.com

At their meeting this week, the Lubbock City Council unanimously approved moving their meetings to the evening hours.

Their meetings currently begin with citizen comment at 7:30 a.m., followed by executive session, then back to meeting in the chambers.

Beginning in August, the meetings will begin no earlier than 6:15 p.m. The Council will first meet in executive session beginning around 3 p.m. to get that portion of the meeting concluded before going into open meeting, to help cut down on public meeting lengths.

“I think it’s a good thing, and if we see that we’re not having any attendance, then we can always go back,” said District 5 Councilwoman Karen Gibson. “We are their council, this is their city, and I think we should at least give them the opportunity to be involved.”

The Council had previously approved having one evening meeting per quarter, which has not yet been held.
