By the end of next year, the city of Galt could be wrapping up a major water meter retrofitting project, with customers paying for what they use.
At Monday’s City Council meeting, council members unanimously agreed to move forward with an alternative plan that would put one agency in charge of furnishing, installing, financing, testing and putting into place the entire water meter program. It would cost about $416,000 per year over the next 15 years, which includes overseeing software that reads the meters.
