LUBBOCK, Texas – On Tuesday, Lubbock City Council will consider an out-of-court settlement on a May 2019 incident with Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L).

According to the city council’s agenda, the agreement is reached between Associated Supply Company, Inc. (ACSO), Federated Insurance Company and the City of Lubbock, which owns LP&L.

A commercial crane vehicle rented by LP&L from ACSO was damaged during the incident.

Lubbock City Council’s approval of the resolution would resolve claims related to the alleged damage related to crane rental by ASCO and its insurer Federated Insurance Company.

The resolution also confirms and approves the receipt of insurance revenue by the city in respect of a portion of it as appropriate, as some funds have been received and others will be due shortly.

LP&L told after the incident that the truck was delivering a transformer to the Nix Electric Company at 720 South Loop 289.

When the transformer moved away from the back of the truck, it was so heavy that it pushed the back of the truck down and lifted the front.
