|The change from mechanical to electronic will take place - if not now it will take place in the future.
However, the timetable for conversion is very subjective and varies with each installation. For instance, if your mechanical meters are in good shape and work, I would suggest a phased roll-out of electronics. We have been lucky to find the parts we need both here on expo1000 and at various vendors. Our luck will not last forever and a gradual phase out of bad meters and their replacement will have to be accomplished as time and money permits.
Another solution to this problem may be multi-space meters by Reino, Lexis, and others or on-street pay-and-display.
