May 27 — The Electric Utility Board on Tuesday will consider approving contracts to purchase advanced metering infrastructure and a new billing system as part of a nearly $40 million project to replace the city’s 100,000-plus meters with the newer technology. If these contracts are approved by the EUB Tuesday, they’ll go to the City Council for a final vote in the coming weeks.
