AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The Amarillo City Council took action Tuesday that could put the city’s fire department on a waiting list for more than two years for a new ladder truck.

Members of the council approved adding almost $200,000 to the truck’s price tag of $1.3 million.

Assistant City Manager Laura Storrs said the extra cost was due to delays that made the city miss out on a demonstration truck that was available.
