AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Today the City Council voted to buy the former A to Z tire building that will become a maintenance facility for city fire trucks.

The future maintenance building is located at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Adams street.

“The building can hold seven to eight trucks during maintenance,” said Amarillo Fire Department Chief Jason Mays.

He said at a price of $600, 000, the building will cost a third of what the new construction would be.

The building will eventually also house offices and classrooms.

The buy of the building will be funded by bond money that is approved by voters in 2016.
