Water Meter Project undergoes judicial review

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops has received the Supreme Court of British Columbia judgment rendered in the judicial review of the Universal Water Metering Request for Proposal process. The review was initiated by Metercor Inc. regarding the selection of the successful proponent to supply and install residential water meters for the City of Kamloops.

The Honourable Mr. Justice Powers found the selection process to be fair and transparent; however, has recommended the Water Meter Committee review the pricing schedule from all proponents. The Water Meter Committee will undertake this action, consider all pricing and come to a final decision on the contracting of the project. This decision will go forward as a recommendation to City Council.
