Can I be legally required to upgrade my water meter? Posted on May 20, 2011

I live in NY and my town water department wants me to upgrade to a new Automatic Read meter. The cost is $50, but I have been unemployed and believe that there are other bills more important than this. They want me to call the office (2nd notice) to avoid interruption of water service. I am current with my bills, I have never been late, but they want to turn off my service if I don't pay the $50. Can they legally do this to me?
