City Manager Pro Tem Michael Dane said "There is a process for that. I'll be glad to follow up with you sometime on that." Here's how Dane et al sold the electronic water meters to the public years ago:
The daily readings include the amount of water used each hour during the previous day, which will assist the City and residents in researching unusual water usage patterns that may result from leaks or malfunctioning sprinkler systems.
There was no mention of the type of water meter at this gentleman's home, but strange readings have been a feature of the new meters.
If the city has access to daily readings and they begin to go off the chart, how much water could be saved by the city being proactive and informing the citizen? One might expect this from a proactive water department.
Rather than follow up with Councilman Silvas Dane should inform the public as to how staff is identifying unusual water usage patterns, informing citizens and reducing wasted water or inaccurate water bills. That would actually be proactive.
