    SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Sioux City is nearing a deal with a contractor to install radio transmitters on all residential water meters.

    The Sioux City Journal says the city has already budgeted $1.5 million for the project.

    Sioux City spent $5.9 million in 2002 to install landline water meter readers, but then people started dropping home landlines to rely solely on cellphones. Residents who dropped landlines and don't have radio transmitters on their meters have to submit their water usage to the city each month.

    Sioux City has about 28,000 residential customers. About 1,000 already have radio meter readers.
