My Town EGR: Snow hinders water meter readers for a second month

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- The City of East Grand Rapids says the snow still blanketing the community means the majority of residential water bills will be estimates again this month.

Because of the snowy, icy conditions, city meter readers were not able to access all water meters for monthly readings.  Approximately 55 percent of residential water bills will be estimated for March.  Last month, roughly 30 percent of city water bills were estimates, based on average household winter water usage.

Residents are encouraged to help speed up the meter reading process by  removing ice and snow blocking access to their water meter. Once a read can be taken, future bills will be adjusted to reflect actual usage.

Anyone with questions can contcat the water billing department at 949-2110.
