On Friday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Mayor Glen Robertson talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in the City of Lubbock.

It's been over 2 weeks since people started complaining about the rate increase form LP&L and their excessively high bills for the month of June. And according to Robertson, complaints are continuing to come in as more and more people are receiving their bills. LP&L have offered those who were under billed to pay off their bills in installments, but Robertson said that doesn't change the fact that raising the rates so high in the middle of the hottest months of the year was a bad idea.

"There's a lot of bad information out there. There's some misinformation being put out from LP&L, in my opinion. We have a difference of opinion on some of the information
they're putting out. The fact is, we raised their rates and collected one hundred percent of the fuel costs in the absolute worse possible months we could have done it.
This should have been postponed till October, but it wasn't."

The mayor has called a special city council meeting for Tuesday, July 30th to discuss the rate increase and possibly take action on it, if necessary.
