This Town Hall Meeting is an opportunity for our Detachment to engage directly with the public around local policing priorities and public safety.

Water Meter Read/Estimate Schedule Commencing in October

Between the months of October and May, the City puts in place an alternating schedule that includes meter reading for half of the City. The alternating schedule is in place during these months due to extra time required to complete city-wide, month to month meter reads. Changes to seasonal staffing, colder temperatures, inclement weather, higher priority maintenance issues in cooler seasons, are all contributing factors in encouraging residents to provide their own meter reading.

Why Should you provide your own meter reading?

• Your water bill will be based on actual consumption preventing you from being over billed or under billed
• Days of usage may be higher when an estimate is used resulting in higher billing. A water meter read will ensure accuracy.
• Estimates are based on prior usage, including summer months where water usage is typically higher. Actual water use in winter months will likely be lower resulting in a lower actual bill.

For further information on this program, your meter, and submitting your reading, visit Martensville.ca or contact utilityclerk@martensville.ca
