LELAND, Miss. (AP) - The city of Leland may ask the state for money to replace as many as 300 residential and commercial water meters either in disrepair or cannot be located.

The Delta Democrat Times reports (https://bit.ly/1vFfvtk ) that Mayor Kenny Thomas told aldermen this week that replacing the old meters with digital meters would cost $100 to $120 per meter. He says the cost if handled by a contractor could cost around $300 per meter.

Thomas says the city is losing revenue.

Thomas says he may ask for a grant through the Mississippi Development Authority.

He says the city plans to replace all 1,600 municipal water meters in phases.
