Council hears meter debate

The Clarkdale Town Council listened last week as a grassroots group expressed concern about smart meters, which monitor electricity usage and transmit the data back to the power company.Traditional energy meters are mounted on the sides of homes and require a person, known as a “meter reader,” to physically come on location and record the numbers. Smart meters will eliminate the need for someone to physically record the information, sending it directly to the billing company instead in a fashion similar to a text message. However, some residents are concerned with levels of radiation smart meters may put out.

Representatives from Sedona Smart Meter Awareness made a presentation at the council’s
Oct. 8 meeting ahead of the deployment of the meter in Clarkdale and other parts of the Verde Valley, planned for sometime in 2014.

“It was interesting to me to hear the information,” Clarkdale Mayor Doug Von Gausig said. “A lot of people spoke from several different communities in the Verde Valley.”
