Merritt Flourish Under the Sun

Last week, Coun. Tony Luck had the opportunity to bring forward a motion regarding the practice of having homeowners install water meters on new builds within the City of Merritt.

“We’ve been giving water meters at a considerable cost to the public to residential builds,” began Luck. “We’ve been giving water meters out for I think ten-plus years with no water metering program in place.”

“I would like to have staff prepare a report on this, and I think we need to cease this program until such time that we have a water metering program in place.,” added Luck.

The reasoning behind the motion from Luck was the fear that the installed water meters could become outdated a lead to an additional expense, if and when, a water metering program is started in Merritt.

The motion to have staff prepare a report was passed unanimously.
