After more than three hours of testimony and discussion — which at times became heated — the Sedona City Council voted 4-3 to say thanks, but no thanks for now to “smart meters.”

Sedona City Councilwoman Barbara LitrellCouncilwoman Barbara Litrell made a motion that read, “We move to direct the staff to prepare a statement for the Arizona Corporation Commission that expresses concerns, on behalf of our Sedona citizens, that smart meters have not been proven safe and until such time as definitive proof exists, the Arizona Corporation Commission should allow the Sedona community to opt-out without penalties.”

In addition to Litrell, those voting in favor were Mayor Rob Adams and councilmen Mike Ward and Dan McIlroy. Those opposed were council members Jessica Williamson and John Martinez and Vice Mayor Mark DiNunzio.
