DYER | The Town Council will consider implementing a manual water meter reading fee as proposed by the Water Board.

The Water Board passed the resolution last month and presented it to the Town Council at its September study session.

The town began installing residential meters that can be read remotely last year. The installations were done on a strictly voluntary basis — customers had to agree to the installations. The new meters were installed at no cost to the consumer.

The board is proposing those customers whose meters are still read manually be charged a $25 fee per reading. This fee will cover the costs associated with performing the readings manually.

There is a cost-savings associated with remote readings, town officials said.

Town Council study sessions are for informational purposes only, so no action was taken. The meter fee proposal will appear as an agenda item on the council’s study session this month.
