Monroe City Council Rejects Meter Bid

The Monroe City Council tonight failed to adopt an ordinance that would have approved the hiring of Vanguard Utility Service to install an automatic meter reading (AMR) system for the city’s water distribution complex.

The motion failed on a 2-2 vote, with Jay Marx and Gretchen Ezernack voting yea and Arthur Gilmore and Eddie Clark voting nay.

Earlier, Gilmore had tried to amend the ordinance to select Triton AMI as the contractor. Triton’s price was some $100 thousand less than that of of Vanguard.

That motion also failed 2-2 with Gilmore and Clark voting yea.

The ordinance will be reconsidered at a special call meeting of the council at noon Thursday.
