LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Lubbock County commissioners looking at
ways to save money are thinking about hanging out the closed sign
on Fridays on the county courthouse.
Commissioner Bill McCay says that could save as much as $10,000
a month in heating and cooling costs and fuel for county vehicles.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports in its online edition that
the commissioners are asking department directors for their input
as they try to decide if the savings justify the reduced
Commissioner Mark Heinrich says the county could only save money
if the entire building is closed.
