Houston: City Will Monitor Power, Water Usage To Determine When Household Doesn't Need Trash Pickup


The city of Springfield will be able to use its City Water Light and Power computers to determine which households are unoccupied, and therefore don’t need to be billed for trash pickup… according to Mayor Mike Houston. 

 

Houston is trying to defuse concerns from residents who fear that the proposed shift of billing waste pickup to CWLP will make it harder for them to temporarily halt trash pickup, and to halt the bills, while they’re away. 

 

Houston says the city can see when electricity and water usage drops below a certain level… and will know that the residents are away and won’t need to be billed for garbage collection. 

 

The proposed trash pickup ordinance is undergoing revisions… an amended version could be released by this weekend.
