My Town EGR: Snow hinders meter readers; many bills estimated

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- The City of East Grand Rapids says the extreme winter weather means nearly one-third of residential water bills will be estimates this month.

Because of the snowy, icy conditions, city meter readers were not able to access all water meters for monthly readings.  Approximately 30 percent of residential waters bills have been estimated for the month of February, based on average household winter water usage.

The city expects the estimates to be a one-time event, but if the extreme winter weather conditions continues, water bills may have to be estimated a second time in March.  Residents are encouraged to help with the process by  removing ice and snow blocking access to their water meter.

Once a read can be taken, bill adjustments will be reflected in the next month's bill.
