Council gives Itron exclusive contract
Cheney already using company’s meters, system will help provide flexibility and cost efficiencies
The Cheney City Council unanimously approved a $96,663 contract with Itron that city officials believe should make electric and water usage more manageable and cost effective.
The global supplier of fixed communications networks for automatic and electronic metering reading will provide equipment, installation and professional services that will provide more flexibility and data management for Cheney’s Light and Public Works departments. Light Department director Joe Noland told the council the recommendation comes at the end of a 12-month demonstration of the fixed metering network.
