GOV, Westchester water meters & Brookfield mobile phones [W, BF]

Suburban Life (Erick Bieritz):
Errors in the way aging meters report water use has resulted in years of low bills in Westchester that may have cost the village $360,000 in revenue.

Suburban Life (Megan Brody):
A class action lawsuit that successfully challenged municipal fees on cell phones will cost Brookfield about $81,000.

The village was named one of the defendants in a suit filed in the late 1990s by several cell phone companies challenging the constitutionality of municipal taxes on cell phone use. The suit concluded in mid-November.
