Request a Meter Bagging

Before your request for meter bagging is granted, all necessary permits must be obtained through Public Works (502-574-3121). A copy of all applicable Public Works permits, in addition to meter bagging fees (see meter bagging rate chart and map), are due in advance of your anticipated meter bagging to the PARC office or the Metro Development Center. To ensure your bagging is completed on a timely basis, all request must be received by 4:00 p.m. of the business day preceding your meter bagging requested start date.

Meter Bagging Procedures

Please follow the steps outlined below as far in advance as possible:

1. Complete a Meter Bagging Request Form (pdf) with the information gathered in steps 2-5 prior to any meter baggings.  This form is available at the Metro Development Center, the PARC office or on-line.

2. Collect the meter numbers (located on the front head of the meter, for example, MA-401 is the meter number for Main, meter #401) that you are requesting to be bagged. If you have any problems finding the meter number, contact the PARC office at 502-574-3817.

3. Contact Public Works (502-574-3121) to determine if you do or do not need a Public Works permit for the meters that you need to be bagged. This is imperative to ensure adherence to metro government policies and procedures.

4. Contact the PARC office (502-574-3817) to get a price quote on meter bagging or to tentatively schedule a meter bagging. Meter bagging fees are listed below on our Meter Bagging Rate Chart and Map. Discounted fees are available to contractors working downtown who are able to prove they are in good standing with the Louisville Metro Revenue Commission prior to their requested bagging date.

5. If a Public Works permit is necessary, bring a copy of the permit to the PARC office at 211 West Muhammad Ali Blvd. along with a Meter Bagging Request Form (pdf) and a check payable to PARC for meter bagging fees (see #4) no later than 4:00pm on the preceding business day of your requested meter bagging to ensure your request is administered on a timely basis. You may also pay for your meter bagging on the 6th floor of Metro Development Hall in the EDD department at 444 S. 5th St.
