Amarillo City Council OK's Atmos Increase Rate

Posted: Updated:

No one likes to see an increase on any bill, but following a city council vote Tuesday, that will soon happen in Amarillo. 

Atmos Energy asked the City of Amarillo for a 20% increase in base revenue. After several months of negotiating, the City of Amarillo and Atmos Energy have finally agreed. 

They agreed on a 14.58% increase which will be a $2.68 per month increase on the average gas bill. 

City council member, Ellen Robertson Green says it was hard negotiating with a huge company. 

Although this was a long and complicated process, the city council is happy to keep the increase lower than Atmos originally wanted. 

Amarillo Residents will see this increase starting April 1st.
