Lubbock's Electric Utility Board has taken a step toward filling the open seat left by former board member Dwight McDonald. 

McDonald was removed from the board last month because he works as a part-time magistrate, and the city charter states those employed by the city cannot hold a seat on the board. 

Members approved three recommendations that will be made to the City Council.

"Number one, we've got to find somebody willing, and with the last six months, it's getting a little harder to find somebody that really wants to serve," Mayor Glen Robertson said. "This is a hard board. We are at a critical juncture with generation coming up, so, I think it would really help to find somebody with a strong financial background, a little bit of background in maybe electrical generation and distribution."

The item will be on the agenda for discussion at next Thursday's council meeting.
