Gautier improving meter reading, city lighting
Question of the Day
GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) - The city of Gautier is undertaking a self-funded $3.2 million project to transition from manual- to radio-read water meters and to retrofit interior lighting of all city buildings.
The project will also retrofit pole lighting at George Martin City Park and City Hall.
The Mississippi Press reports (http://bit.ly/1nc3r1g ) the city council approved an energy services agreement with McNeil Rhoads on Tuesday.
City Manager Samantha Abell told city officials the program is expected to result in a revenue surplus of $827,466 due to a reduction in energy and operating expenses.
Abell says all 7,010 water meter accounts in Gautier will be replaced in 2014 and the new water meters will insure customers will pay for actual water used.
Officials say the automated meter reading system will be in place by November.
