Airgas still doesn't know if it will have to pay an almost $150,000 from last month's fire and explosions.

A newly passed Tulsa city ordinance allowed the fire department to charge Airgas for the hazardous materials clean up. But at Thursday night's city council meeting, Airgas officials tried to convince the council to waive that bill and instead have them pay a yearly fee that would have taken care of the costs.

The Tulsa city council referred the appeal to the Public Works committee, which expects to make its recommendation next week.
