6.15 am Lapta water meter (card) disabled.
Now will get a bill monthly to pay.
What happens if I don't pay monthly, do I pay for what I use?
Before, locals never paid for water but belidere would not cut them off!
Karsiyaka border.

I spoke to Mr Tolga at Lapta Belediyesi this week.
He said they had many problems with the card meters malfunctioning and cutting people's supply off, resulting in engineers constantly having to go out to reset the meters etc.
The existing meters, minus the electronics, will stay.
From now on meters will be read monthly and customers will be billed only for what they use (not like the old system of paying for 10 tonnes even if you used much less). The bill will be left at the meter.
I pay by direct debit from Iktisat bank.

Thanks for the reply.
I remember the uproar when they were installed because EVERYBODY had to pre pay for the water ,public services and property tax.

13roman58, sorry but you are wrong, not EVERYBODY had to pre pay for the water. In this part of Alsancak we have NEVER had to prepay and just pay for what we use. A nice man comes round about the 15th of each month, reads our meter, and sticks the bill into our post box. Before we had a post box he used to stick it under a rock near the gates. As simple as that.

Sorry Sophie but the headline is ' Lapta water meters ' nothing to do with alsancak,and therefore I am not wrong.
Having lived in Lapta/karsiyaka for14 year's I think that I have a better understanding of what happens here.
