The city of Ottertail will soon be fitted with new meter reading equipment.

At its March 10 meeting, the Ottertail City Council approved a $72,710 purchase to buy a new system.


The decision comes after the city's existing equipment failed last month. Ottertail Maintenance Supervisor Lee Sherman discovered that the meter readings were missing after returning to his office. This resulted in the city having to estimate water bills for the entire city.
