LUBBOCK, TX - The City of Lubbock and Lubbock Power and Light worked together to create an “Open House” for residents in the community to come and express their concerns and comments.
“As we expected it's been a mixture of curiosity and concern but our goal was if we could alleviate some of the concern when they leave at least they know what went into the decisions and policies for their bill. We really hope to build a relationship with our customers as well,” Matt Rose with Lubbock Power and Light said.
The event had members from each different utility department there to talk to those looking for answers. They also had staff demonstrating how to read water meters.
“We hope it goes beyond a bill you receive in the mail but people learn your bill is made through a group of folks right here in Lubbock. We are all citizens and we want to make sure we're available on what we do and why we do it and answer any questions,” Rose said.
LP&L and The City of Lubbock will be hosting another “Open House Event” Tuesday August 29th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Joan Y. Ervin Elementary School.
