Commissioners discuss tax funds, final plan for Expo Center

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The county will start collecting taxes to build the Lubbock County Expo Center starting July 1. 

Attorneys have another two weeks to make final touches on the plan. In two weeks they'll submit the final order on how to allocate the extra revenue from the Hotel Motel Occupancy Tax and the hike in the rental car tax. 

"We will have one year to issue those bonds. One year to pull the entire thing together - the final plans for the venue itself, the location and including the maintenance and operation plans going forward," County Judge Curtis Parrish said. 

Parrish said the county will use every tool is has to maximize returns on its taxes and bonds. That includes two percent of the occupancy tax and five percent of the rental car tax. 

"I am committed - I am still committed - that not one dime of Lubbock County property tax money will go toward this facility," Parrish said. "That being said, I need a long-term maintenance and operations plan."
