The Kanawha City Council met this week to discuss a possible change in water meters and reading units.
Steve Brush from VanWert Company in Grundy Center gave a presentation on the Itron water meter reading system. The summarized proposal was $26,400 for meter and endpoints. An additional $12,870 would be for software and hardware for the project which would bring the total project cost to $39,270.
Optional residential water meter installations would be around $20,400.
The coucil took the matter into consideration and may act on the project in future meetings.
