Property Owners have two options:
Request that a manual-read, non-RF meter be installed within your home. This entails hard wiring a touch-read pad from the manual-read meter in your residence to an exterior wall outside your residence. A city employee will have to access the exterior of your residence at the touch read device location once per quarter to obtain your quarterly meter reading. There is an additional charge of $25/quarter (i.e., $100 per year) for this option to cover the cost of manually reading your meter.
Request that a RF meter be installed in a below-ground pit outside your residence at the street-frontage property line. There is an additional one-time charge of $1,000 for this option to cover the incremental extra cost of a pit installation as opposed to an in-home installation.
Residents interested in either option can contact the Civic Operations Department at 250-828-3461 for further details.
