The Charlotte County Commission will vote on a nonbinding resolution that supports giving residents the right to choose whether they want Florida Power & Light’s new Smart Meter devices to replace their existing meters.
After listening to lengthy arguments on the pros and cons of installing the new wireless devices from both FPL representatives and residents opposed to the new technology at their May 22 meeting, commissioners directed County Attorney Janette Knowlton to draft a resolution modeled after one created in Indian River County that supports residents’ ability to opt out of the program. The resolution will go before the commission for a final vote at its regular-agenda meeting at
9 a.m. Tuesday at the county administration building in Murdock.
