Water meters for Cornwall Ontario. Hmm….Nope. I don’t want one. I don’t know too many people that do and I certainly don’t think too many think that they will save a whole lot of money.
Ontario is going through a similar issue with these new “SMART METERS” for electricity. A politician stated this recently.
“..aide to interim Energy Minister Gerry Phillips, responding to a report by Sun Media’s Jonathan Jenkins that most Toronto Hydro customers are seeing their electricity bills increase following the installation of smart meters, noted: “The smart meters are more about creating awareness of energy use, rather than helping people to save money.”
And that’s the reality of the Water Meter program no matter who denies it. We taxpayers have to pay for the implementation of the system, IE the meters, and then we will continue to pay. Is this really how we want to attract more people to Cornwall? Do we have any water issues other than the high cost of the new sewage treatment plant?
We now export water to other areas. Do those homes too have to have water meters? We’re blessed with water in this area. We have an amazing city. We don’t need to mimic everything that bigger cities do. Do we?
What do you think Cornwall?
