“Many residents and businesses in the Amarillo community responded to the need to conserve energy this week, and it definitely made a difference,” said City Manager Jared Miller. “This was a unique weather event across the state and region. Fortunately, the people of Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle come together during times of adversity. The inclement weather and the response of our community is another example of that.”
