As a homeowner, off and on, since 1977, I really must take offense at some of the machinations of the IWD.
Being open in its dealings with its constituency would certainly remove some stress.
How about having an open house and tour of our plant and facilities some weekend? Using the word “security” as an excuse does not work.
Open discussion of meter installations is called for. Perhaps the IWD could work closely with its constituents and alleviate some of the pain and friction.
