May 15 — The Dallas City Council and Atmos Energy could be headed for a legal showdown over the gas company’s latest proposed fee hike.

After more than $18 million worth of rate increases since 2013, Atmos would like to get another $10.7 million from Dallas customers to help pay for its infrastructure improvements. But company reps told city officials they’d settle for $7.8 million, or roughly $2.46 more on the average customer’s monthly gas bill.
