Lubbock’s First News Discusses City Council Night Meetings and LP&L Televised Meetings [AUDIO]
On Thursday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew discussed the possibilities of Lubbock City Council holding their meetings at night, and Lubbock Power & Light televising their utility board meetings.
Chad and Rex both agree that there is no problem with holding a few of the city council meetings at night. They said that the excuses about night meetings possibly running until the early morning are "cop-outs," and that the city council seems to have forgotten that they work for the people, and should be accommodating to them.
As far as LP&L goes, both Chad and Rex are in agreement that the utility board meetings should be televised. Since the LP&L meetings are already open to the public, they said there's really no reason to not televise the meetings, and that probably one of the reasons LP&L doesn't want the meetings televised is that they don't want to be opened up to all the criticism from the public.
We want to know your thoughts on both issues. You can sound off either here at KFYO.com or on Facebook. And be sure and tune in to the Friday edition of Lubbock's First News, where Mayor Tom Martin will be in studio from 7 AM to 8 AM discussing the latest coming out of city council.
