Water meter replacement update. - If you are one of the 9 remaining HOs, Brandon Damon is taking over for Jerry Livernois, LASA operations contractor with F&V will be contacting you to schedule a date to replace your meter. They will be scheduling times on Saturdays.  If you have any questions/concerns please call Brandon (517.673.9369). We would also recommend you call him to give him your cell phone /email address to allow him/you to keep each other updated until replacement occurs. 
          New meter batteries found bad - In completing recent meter readings, we found about 60 meters that we were unable to read. The problem was diagnosed as bad batteries. The batteries are covered under the meter warranty, however replacements are about 1 year out for delivery. If you are one of those HOs with a bad battery LASA will be sending you a letter, asking you to read your own meter on the first day of the new quarter (4/1, 7/1, 10/1, 1/1) and email the reading to Sandy:  sandy@lasautilities.org    If you don't read your meter LASA will be forced to estimate your water usage for the period based on previous readings
 
Billing rates - not raised!  For those with new meters installed during the quarter, their January bill was a sum of the readings from the old meter and the new meter. The LASA software package calculated the total dollar value for both readings, but only showed the usage units for the new meter on the bill. Hence the rates appeared to be higher. This was not the case. FYI current LASA rates are posted in the Documents column below.
If you are one of those customers who have seen your water bill increase, LASA suggests you educate yourself on the new meter and how they can help you monitor your water usage.
