If we include the procurement method the City of Lubbock Utilities uses to extract funds from the customers, improprieties can be discovered by merely looking at a common bill, and comparing it to the true expense of such service, whether the service is performed by a contracted city employee, or a contracted independent company. The mayor cried "excessive" when Atmos charged $11.00 monthly to read and maintain their meters, but LPL&W charges $28.00 to read each residential water meter, which is even more excessive. I invite LPL&W or the mayor to disclose the actual expense paid to read and maintain the water meters, and the total revenue collected for such fee. Which department or official is embezzling water meter funds into other projects? Why is there a sewer charge exceeding $15.00 for customers that purchase only $5.00 of water? why is there a stormwater fee during the worst drought in Lubbock's recorded history? When are the victims of the monopoly going to receive a complete refund of the excessive fees? Guilty or innocent, the feds should arrest the city manager, council, & utility board, hold them for an indefinite amount of time, make them pay bail from their own pockets, with no compensation from their employer. A federal prosecutor should persecute, as well as prosecute, on terms at least as favorable as the mayor accepted after he was annoyed by a member of the public.
