Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin Talks Jim Gilbreath and Water Issues on Lubbock’s First News [AUDIO]
On Friday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin talked with Chad and Rex about the latest issues coming out of city council.
Yesterday's city council meeting was the last city council meeting for District 6 councilman Jim Gilbreath, who will not be running for re-election. Martin said that Gilbreath's experience serving of numerous board and commissions and his record of service made him an invaluable part of the city council.
"Whether it's involvement in your church or civic organization...it's all volunteer work that helps make the community better and I can't think of anyone that has been more involved than Jim Gilbreath and we'll miss him on the council."
Martin also talked about the various water sources for the city of Lubbock. The council approved yesterday to expand the Bailey County well field, which serves as a back-up source of water for Lubbock. Martin said that these wells, along with wells in Roberts County as well as Lake Alan Henry and what's left of Lake Meredith will provide a diversified water system for Lubbock and the surrounding areas. Martin also spoke about park equipment, and tomorrow's Lemonade Day event.
