Union Bay Improvement District Conundrum

Just had a talk with one of my neighbours and she stated, What is the procedure for hiring meter readers?

“I saw a new employee working on Tuesday. I did not see it advertised on the UBID website? My Husband would have applied. Is the new employee a Family member?”

So I decided to get some answers….

What is a meter reader….

From another City but you get the drift

The Trustee Handbook states;


I have sent an enquiry to Union Bay Improvement District Trustee Vandenberg and await his reply.

Good afternoon Trustee Vandenberg,

Just had a talk with one of my neighbours and she stated, what is the procedure for hiring meter readers?

“I saw a new employee working on Tuesday. I did not see it advertised on the UBID website? My Husband would have applied. Is the new employee a Family member?”

Hopefully you can answer her question,

Respectfully submitted

Trustee Vandenburg replyed on November 30th;

Hello Paul.

No new positions for water meter reader have been posted because there are none. Any permanent position even though part time would be be posted.

This was a case of a regular employee not being available, on short notice, and it seems only for a day. There is nothing in our policies or bylaws that I can find that prevent the admin from hiring a sub for a temporary job when needed and it is time sensitive. I’m not sure who the temp was but it was not a member of my family.

Sorry my response was a little slow but I have been rather busy.Hein Vandenberg
