Lubbock City Council to Consider New Location For Godeke Library, Try Out New Citizen Comment Procedures
The Lubbock City Council will meet Thursday evening and will try out their new procedures for citizen comments.
The Council has removed the time limit for individual speakers, but will limit the time for citizen comments to 60 minutes. Those wishing to discuss items with the Council are now required to sign up 75 hours in advance of the meeting.
If a person misses the 75-hour deadline, they can speak at the end of the meeting, but the Council will not discuss items that are not on the agenda.
The Council will also consider moving the Godeke Library from the current location at 67th Street and Slide Road to 5034 Frankford Avenue.
The monthly rent at the current Godeke location is $25,000 per month, and rent at the new location would be $6,315 per month through August of 2016.
In the commercial lease agreement with the Luskey Brothers that the Council will consider, the rent would increase to $9,472.50 per month from September 2016 through August of 2019.
If approved by the Council, the lease would become active on September 1st, 2014.
The Council will meet at 6:15 p.m. at Lubbock City Hall.
