AMARILLO -- Potter County Commissioners have approved a tax increase.
Several weeks ago, commissioners preliminarily approved a 2.5-percent tax increase for property owners.
Today, the increase passed in a final vote of four to one.
Officials say the added revenue will pay for a new fire truck and a new fire station.
The extra money will also pay for new gear for the constables and some new equipment for first responders.
