Automated Water Meter Reading.

During our Council Workshop on January 13th, 2010 we were given a presentation by Sensus, an organization that provides automated Water Meter readings. While it is very early in the process, there is some investigation into enabling this in Denville.
There are many things to be investigated and discussed but in theory this seems like a good proposal for our town at some point.

As council, I will want to see more detail on the cost analysis and savings of such implementation, However it sounds like a good effecient opportunity. By state law, Utilities need to be a self-sustained fund. However, if we are more efficient in this department we might be able to better utilize resources in other areas of Public Works. I will be interested in more on this topic.
