You have to give the Naperville city council along with city manager Doug Krieger a lot of credit; no amount of information about the dangers of smart meters will change their mind regarding the installation of those meters to more than 57,000 homes and businesses throughout Naperville.
They are an extraordinary confident group of politicians that will not be swayed by any amount of proof or evidence that smart meters are neither smart or safe. It makes absolutely no difference that medical, safety, and security experts disagree with the Naperville city council. It makes no difference to the council or city manager Doug Krieger that cities throughout the country are stopping the installation of ‘smart’ meters in favor of their resident’s safety. Yes, the Naperville city council and city manager Doug Krieger will not be moved by reports of smart meters overheating and catching fire in the Chicago area. Apparently from the council’s and Krieger’s point of view, it’s not that big of a deal.
Naperville has thousands of homes and businesses, so what’s a few fires here and there. Naperville has one of the finest fire departments in the Chicago area, so if and when smart meters overheat and cause smokin’ hot fires that ignite homes like Bunsen burners, it’s just more opportunities to show Naperville citizens that fire trucks really look and sound cool.
House fires have an upside; more permits will need to be issued for rebuilding, hence more dollars in the city coffers. Those dollars can then be used to fight the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness group in court. That’s the group of dedicated, highly educated and informed Naperville citizens trying to protect all Naperville residents in Federal court against the city of Naperville’s attempt to forcefully install smart meters on our homes and businesses.
Naperville city officials say that the meters are safe. If J. Bruce Ismay of the White Star Line (builder of the Titanic) can say, “Even God can’t sink this ship”, then when the council and city manager say smart meters are safe, it must be true…right? City officials are eager to mention that there have been no fires associated with the installation of smart meters in Naperville (yet). It sure sounds like the Naperville city council along with city manager Doug Krieger are foolishly, ‘smokin’ hot’ confident.
