City council delays action on Atmos rate increase

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock City Council members voted to delay action on a proposal by Atmos Energy to raise rates for Lubbock customers on Thursday night.

The city previously denied the request, due to a change in how Atmos asks for an increase. The council then changed how they approve an increase.

Atmos says the increase would cost the average customer about $5 more a month.

They say the money would help pay for improvements, such as new pipelines.

If the city denies the request again, Atmos can appeal to state regulators.
