LUBBOCK, TX -- Lubbock Power & Light needs a new roof over its head, and the City of Lubbock has gone out for bids to replace that roof at 1301 Broadway Street.  The estimated cost is $70,000, and once a contract is accepted the work needs to be done within 60 days.  The due date for bidders is July 29.

At the same time the City of Lubbock has gone out for bids to help with upkeep at the 160-acre City Cemetery.  Within the last three weeks some have complained that the city had not kept the cemetery properly mowed – especially in light of recent rainfall.  On Sunday did a little checking and parts of the cemetery looked well kept.  Other parts might not have been to everyone’s satisfaction. 

The estimated value of the lawn-care contract is not listed in the bid document. Bids are due on Tuesday afternoon and city reserves the right to split up the work and hire multiple companies.
