Amarillo Energy Cost Increase

Amarillo residents could see an increase on their electric bill as early as October. The city commission approved unanimously to increase Xcel Energy's franchise fee up from 3% to 5%.

The city imposed 2% surcharge means each customer will pay about $2.00 more per every $100.00 utility bill. 

Assistat City Manager Alan Taylor says the money goes into the general fund and pays for city needs like police and fire.
