Naperville Budget Workshop Discussions, March 23, 2015

Below is a short video regarding the Naperville City Council Budget Workshop held on March 23, 2015.  There is discussion regarding:

  • A proposed $150,000 rate study;
  • The status of the Lowfoot project where 100 City customers tested a new e-portal type product (after the failure of the Calico contract which resulted in no usable product).

Noteworthy quotes:

  • The smart metering provides just an insurmountable amount of information.”  Well, if that is the case, why continue to collect it?
  • “The residents really enjoyed tracking the ‘weekly’ usage,” yet only 4 people showed up to talk about the project at an “open house,” and 33 responded to an online survey about their experience.  Yes, it sounds like people were really excited.
