The latest local government reaction to resident rage and push back from voters. Checkit:
Examiner: Will ‘smart meters’ go to voters?
Independence’s City Council voted this week to indefinitely postpone an ordinance that would have put a smart meter vote on the ballot for Aug. 6.
It doesn’t necessarily mean the council is ignoring the citizens’ successful ballot initiative petition for a smart meter vote, though.

The council had no discussion on that ordinance Monday.
