Automated Meter Reading System
The City of Bellefontaine began implementation of our new Automated Water Meter Reading System in May 2011. These new meters will include technology to read your water consumption more efficiently and improve the amount of data the City will receive. The benefit to our customers will be that we will be able to identify water leaks more affectively, so that, we can inform you as soon as any problems are identified. The benefits to the City will be that we will then be able to read your meter via tower based Radio Frequency technology to gather readings without the need of readers in the field and incremental daily readings for better service for final billings. We are experiencing great success by providing better customer service to the citizens of Bellefontaine!
The City of Bellefontaine would like to alert our residents and customers to be aware of a nationwide scam impacting utility customers in several states acress the country. The scam claims President Obama is providing credits or applying payments to their utility bills. In some cases, scammers have asked for social security numbers to allow for credits or to apply payments to customers' utility bills. Scammers have visited customers in person, made phone calls and used social media and texting to send messages claiming that President Obama will provide a credit or directly pay their utility bills. The City of Bellefontaine wants to assure customers that they do not randomly call or text customers asking for social security numbers or other personal information. We urge our residents to never give out their social security number, credit card number or banking information to anyone requesting it over the phone or at their home unless they have initiated the contact. If you receive this type of call, please contact the Bellefontaine Police Department at 937-599-1010.
