The town of Elk Point will soon have new water meters that can be read remotely.
Town council approved the purchase of the meters to replace faulty ones in town and to be used on all new builds. The ability for remote reading means that no one has to enter the yard of a house that has one. 63 meters have been ordered at a total expense of $22,000.
The town’s long term goal is to have these new meters at every residence.
