Public Works is continuing to
upgrade the Village's water meter reading infrastructure. This involves the
replacement of the existing touchpad located on the outside of the home used
for obtaining the monthly reading for billing purposes with a new radio read
unit, similar to what Nicor and ComEd have done in the area. The new, light
grey boxes are a little bigger than the existing black touchpads but the
mounting points will be able to be reused in most cases. The change out of
the unit will only take about 10 minutes and crews would not need access inside
the home. Residents will not experience any disruption in service from this
work and will be notified that the work occurred with a door hanger. If there
is an issue with the conversion, Public Works would notify the customer to set
up an inside appointment at a later date.
Crews are moving to the next
metering district, and the boundaries of this area can be seen in the
below map. Questions can be directed to Public Works at (630) 469-6756.
