The City of Sanford reads each meter monthly utilizing Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) Technology. Meter reading equipment is installed in City owned vehicles allowing the meter reader to drive at a slow pace while the reading equipment automatically collects the meter readings. With AMR, the reader does not have to read the meters in any particular route order or physically exit the vehicle to read them, they drive the service area once a month and the collect the readings. Each meter is read between 28 and 35 days in the customer’s billing cycle. This technology allows for the meter readers to read meters in a controlled environment with pin point accuracy in a timely an efficient manner. For more information call Utility Customer Service at 407.688.5100.
