The City of Bridgeport is investing in a new way to read water meters in an attempt to save money for customers and the city.
On Monday, city council authorized an initial payment of $225,000 for a system that will allow meters to be read from the office, thus eliminating the need for monthly meter reading. The new system will read the meter every 15 minutes and will help officials find leaks sooner.
The new system will be phased in over he next ten to fifteen years.
Council also recognized Ray Shaw for his work with the Volunteers in Police Service Program.
