Carterville, Illinois (January 2019) – The City of Carterville, Illinois announces the purchase of a citywide Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. The project will include radio read water meters and an innovative software solution. The system designed and installed by Core and Main will greatly enhance reporting efficiencies, eliminating not only human error, but the two week process to manually read each meter. The system will provide live reporting to a central tower creating the ability to identify water leaks when they begin. Installation has an anticipated completion of March, 2019. The City of Carterville selected Government Capital Corporation as the most cost effective financing solution for their purchase.
“The 10 year fixed rate structure allowed the budget flexibility to facilitate the AMI project. The expertise GCC provided was of value to our project. ” stated Amy Simpson, Water Department Supervisor.
D.C. Greer, Vice President, Government Capital Corporation stated “This is a great example of dedicated leaders being responsible with their resources and diligently assessing the needs of the City.
