Broken water meters costly in Atlanta

Jeremy Redmond of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a large number of Atlanta-area residents and businesses have received outrageous water bills because of broken meters that the city has not fixed, even after multiple complaints. Atlanta entered into a new contract with a private company to repair and update all meters, but the company is not required to fix broken meters first. To verify the city's claims that meters are being fixed, the newspaper requested copies of monthly reports on the contractor's performance and meters that cannot be read or located, but the city has not yet provided the records.
