On Wednesday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Councilman Paul Beane called in to talk with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the reason that the Lubbock City Council voted yesterday for changes to Lubbock's municipally owned power utility.

The council voted 7-0 for Lubbock Power and Light the option to issue refunds as opposed to the old ordinance where it was mandatory and gives LP&L the option to issue refunds out of the General Reserve if they decide to do so. Beane called in to clarify the reason for the changes in the language was that the Electric Utility Board voted for the changes unanimously 9-0.

Chad asked why were the changes made since LP&L and Beane said, "It came as a recommendation from the electric utility board." Chad pressed Beane on why the changes were recommended by the board and Beane responded, "You have to ask the electric utility board."
