Last week, Martin gave his State of the City address, and said that overall, the economy in Lubbock is doing well. However, he said he is concerned about the effects of last year’s severe drought.

This last year, because of the drought, we had people increase their water usage here, probably in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 percent.

Martin said that the city will be implementing the “Stage 2″ water conversation measures starting April 1st. Some of the more significant measures include only being able to water your lawn once a week, and every homeowner will be assigned a day where they will be allowed to water their lawn. The measures will go into in effect until the Lake Alan Henry project goes online, which is expected to be sometime in late summer.

Mayor Martin also talked about several issues brought up at city council, including new police vehicles, the animals shelters, and the difference between taxes and fees.
