A lot of people use the public sidewalks, so we ask that you please take the time to shovel them after each snowfall.

The City of Bayport has hired the company Midwest Testing, who will begin the water meter radio read installation today, November 20 through December. This will allow the City to read water meters remotely and more efficiently via a vehicle equipped with a specialized radio read computer. A mailing was sent to all Bayport properties outlining this installation process last week. Nearly all residential and commercial properties in Bayport will have this radio device installed on the exterior of their home or business. A small portion of customers will need to have the radio device installed on the interior. These customers will receive a door hanger notice requesting them to contact Midwest Testing for an installation appointment. Midwest Testing employees will be in clothing and vehicles clearly marked with the company name. Please use caution and give way to Midwest Testing when you see them in your neighborhood. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Public Works Department at 651-275-4410. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
