NG Utilities requests tariff for customers who refuse new meters

MADISON - New Glarus Utilities wants to charge customers who do not convert to electronic meters about $15 a month but to date no one has refused having the new meters installed, an official said. This year the village began converting its 1,200 aging analogue electric and water meters to electronic ones that eliminate having to send a meter reader to each location. "That can take five of us two days every month, three days depending on the weather," said Scott Jelle, director of public works.
