That is why they are trying to make it a part of the city

A study to come up with a cost to replace meters????
Depends on the equipment. The 3/4" water meter goes for $125, add another $100 for a radio read. Install costs depends on outsource or using city employees. About an hour to install and overhead to schedule appointments and track new information into billing software. Double the equipment cost to cover labor to install and it will be $23,400,000
Reading equipment is $5,000 per hand held unit. Units mounted in vehicles or a static base station that can read meters from a control room cost more. This eliminates the need for meter readers. But pays for itself.
Now lower my rates since you have a study.

The Commissioners need to do what is right and honor the property owner's request. The petition for annexation is the best use of the land. Land ownership should give a person, (or corporation) the ability to decide where they will pay taxes. Furthermore, the project will increase property valuation and benefit the County tax base and improve funding for the School district and Cardinal Fire District.

Trustees are being shortsighted in attempting to maintain their Fiefdom. They are attempting to protect their small portion of the property's tax base in spite of a project that will benefit many. The township offer no services to a parcel of land bounded by two state routes. Even the road and storm sewer fall under ODOT jurisdiction.

Foust Construction, Co. is one of the most reputable contractors in the area. Sounds like a council member has an ax to grind. Not sure ODOT funding is readily transferable to other infrastructure projects that need attention. Council needs to look at the funding and see what could potentially be lost by not awarding the project.

What's next? Daily use fees at Boardman Park. Will the dog park be open during Oktoberfest? I'd like to see the receipts of the money the Park receives from Rotary to use the entire park for the whole weekend.

READ!!! Don't skim "Once the project is finished, a $100 annual membership for nonresidents and $50 for residents will be charged, Loree said. They will each receive a swipe card to operate the gate. That money will go back to Boardman Park to maintain the dog park, he added."

Cellular phones pose about as much risk to cause a fire at a gas station as a person wearing corduroy pants.
