Canton looks into updating water meters


Mon, Sep 22nd, 2014

The Canton City Council discussed the town’s need for new water meters at their regular meeting on September 10.

Town engineer Jon Nordsving stated there have been problems with the current water meters and several readers are malfunctioning or broken. He noted that about one-third of the city’s water is unaccounted for or not billed to anyone.

Nordsving recently discussed options for updating the water meters with Minnesota Pipe and Equipment. The type of water meters currently used in Canton are no longer made. New meters are available with a different type of reader. In addition to replacing water meters, they also offer GPS mapping of water and sewer lines. This provides a very accurate way of locating the lines and shutoffs, which would be valuable considering the amount of time often necessary to locate and reach them. He recommended the Council consider this option when replacing the water meters.

Mayor Donivee Johnson stated that the city may be able to get a Rural Water micro-loan for updating the water meters. She did not know the interest rate that evening, but said it has been reasonable. Once the city has gotten estimates for replacing the water meters and GPS mapping, she will take a closer look at the numbers and discuss with the Council. This project would not happen until spring.

Historical Society event

Kathy Haynes, President of the Canton Historical Society, was present at the meeting to discuss an event the Historical Society is hosting at the end of the month.

The Historical Society has been working to save and restore the old depot in Canton. The depot was donated to the Society by Larry and Laurie Huber and the upcoming event is in their honor to give the community a chance to thank them.

The Council unanimously approved a motion to designate the Hubers as Honorary Citizens of Canton. A certificate signed by the Council will be presented during the program. The Council will also present the Historical Society with a check for $10,000 at the event.

The event will take place at the Canton Town Hall on Sunday, September 28. There will be a dinner at 1:00 pm and a program at 2:00 pm. The cost for dinner is $10 per person. Cake and coffee will be served following the program. Community members are invited to attend all or part of this event.
