Contractor should be liable for damages from water meter installation
It has long been recognized that Baltimore City has a problem with the accurate determination of its residents' water bills. It is not the purpose of this letter to yet again tell the story of another Baltimore City resident who got an erroneous water bill, although I did receive one several months ago for $45,000. Clearly, a key component of this problem deals with the antiquated water meters that are presently currently in use within the city. I applaud the City Council's decision to replace these meters with state-of-the-art units that will ensure accurate bills ("City selects low bidder to install 400,000 water meters," Nov. 6). It's about time!
