Director of Financial Services Cheryl Tkachuk explained to council the new meters send readings remotely via cell-phone text. Allowing someone to keep their old meter would complicate this streamlined process.
“We would still have to have someone go there to read the meter,” Director of Financial Services Cheryl Tkachuk told council.
“That means we’d have to have a vehicle drive there, we’d have to have the personnel.”
The woman’s request has been referred to the financial services department.
