here is another issue water and sewer bills  i was basically threatened by the township that if i didnt let them into my home to check a meter they would shut me off. for one thing i have an outside source for them to read the meter. so why threaten someone  . it says call a certain number i did and of course no one answers must be at a coffee clatch . and when the water and sewer dept. employee's got caught with there pants down did they shut off their water . no of course  not  . makes one think . how corrupt is the the westdeptford twp govt and its employee's

I received the same letter. I certainly didn't feel threatened - they give you 90 days - more than enough time to find one day to stay home and let them confirm the outside reading. This is just a good business decision on the part of the Township. Too bad that's the only one I've seen. Sounds like the meeting the other night was just another in a long line of embarrassment and political sniping. Grow up people!

What was wrong with the old system? If your not home when they come around you read the meter yourself and send it in. If you are home when they come around, you let them in to read. Last time it was read by the township the first person said I misread it so they sent out another employee the next day and he said everything was alright.

had the guy read my meter his device to read from the remote transponder would not work called his super out his device did not work. Never had a problem in 25 years now the gang of four launches a new program and shit don't work so their first step is to see if we are ripping them off .the phone lines are overloaded you cant even get thru I had to make a personal visit to arrange this. Now that ray and co spent every cent the twp. had on a one shot budget deal they are going to try to balance the next one on the backs of the taxpayer by holding your water hostage if there is a discrepancy and you cant pay up P.S. the people in the water dept. were great to deal with not so sure about the administration !

Why haven't they audited the meters in over 10 years? The letter says it's a requirement really?
