Under the direction of council, city administration is working to revisit the sewer and water utility bylaw to deal with malfunctioning meters.
Several customer complaints have been lodged with the city regarding a malfunctioning meter and accompanying large water bill, ranging from $1,700 to $4,500.
“It’s caused us to go back and review what practices we’ve been employing over the past number of years in the community, even to the point of actually visiting the meter shop to find out what types of meters we’re using and what types of meters we’re putting in people’s homes and the reliability of those meters,” said Matt Noble, city manager following Tuesday’s executive committee meeting.
