I always thought something was going on there BC they never excepted credit/debit cards. As well as you could not pay online, shady if you ask me.

I still say you have to have a power source to send a signal, do you see any electricity going to your meter?

Almost every water district and company uses the same technology or is moving towards using it. the meter runs on battery, transmits a signal picked up by the meter reader, who usually drives around with a device collecting all the signals from everyone in range. If a meter fails to transmit a signal, they go back and read it manually.

That could be possible, but there are thousands of old meters in this county and if they were being updated someone would know about it. As I said earlier my parents meter has not been opened in years, you have to know where its at to even find it, dirt and grass has completely covered the lid, so I dont know so much about the drive by reading thing...lol

Are you always rude? Or am I just taking you this way? Do I believe this is how it's read? Yes. The light and power is basically the same way now.

Actually, they have had bank drafts available for 4-5 years. I live in the city and you can't pay the Water Commission online either, just bank draft. And it would be accepted not excepted.

Why were there four family members working at the same public utility. That in itself seems questionable...

Where were the brainless water department commissioners the were supposed to oversee the management, protect the customers from fraud, and prevent this extreme nepotism. My goodness. This has not just developed in the last few days. These commissioners should be held liable too. Dumbazzes.

If you "don't want to hear it", quit posting on a public forum. What do you expect? People are going to offer an opinion good or bad to whatever anyone has to say. You can dish it out but you can't take it??
