Agenda Title:

19-733 - A resolution establishing an Opt-Out Policy pertaining to the potential future deployment of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).
Recommendations:

Recommend Passage

Executive Summary:

This Resolution would establish an Opt-Out Policy for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), and direct the City Manger to provide said Policy to customers, and enforce its provisions, if and when AMI deployment is authorized by the City Council.
Background:

The City Council and staff have spent considerable time and effort evaluating the pros and cons of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).  This process has served to illustrate the need for an Opt-Out Policy to take effect if and when AMI is deployed. While the Council has directed the City Manager not to proceed with AMI deployment at this time, adoption of this Policy would signal the Council's intentions regarding an AMI Opt-Out in the event deployment proceeds in the future.
