Lubbock City Councilman Victor Hernandez Continues to Push for Joint City-County Health Department

City of Lubbock

District 1 Lubbock City Councilman Victor Hernandez (pictured) has announced he will continue to push the city toward creating a joint City of Lubbock/ Lubbock County Health Department.

At the city council’s previous meeting, Lubbock County Judge Tom Head told the council that a joint health department wasn’t feasible.

“There’s no money on the county side. I don’t think there’s any money on the city side, and even if there is, it wouldn’t benefit the citizens for us to come together,” said Lubbock County Judge Tom Head last week. “Those deliverables are determined on the amount of grant money, and we don’t have any control over that.”

Councilman Hernandez has put a resolution on to the agenda for next week’s council meeting.  If approved, it would allow representatives of the City of Lubbock Health Department to initiate discussions with representative from Lubbock County, UMC and Covenant for a joint city-county health department or to collaborate on an effort to –quote- ensure the continued existence of the City of Lubbock Health Department.
