ARLINGTON — A Cincinnati company has been recommended to replace water meters in Arlington.
Arlington’s Board of Public Affairs on Monday told Village Council it has selected Neptune Equipment Co. to install digital residential water meters for $183,763.
Arlington Council will now examine the bid and probably vote on it next month.
New water meters, according to village officials, will offer more accurate water readings.
In a related matter, Arlington officials are asking residents to check for water leaks inside their homes.
Some people have complained about high water/sewer bills, only to find a leak in a toilet or elsewhere.
Village officials said Monday a small leak can translate into a significant water bill during a two-month water bill cycle.
Separately, a water main break was fixed last week near downtown Arlington.
Former Water Superintendent Rick Monday was praised for his contribution during the repair.
In other business, council:
- Will proceed with fixing the leaky roof of the fire hall.
- Is searching for candidates for lifeguards this summer at the village swimming pool.
