In response to Re: main water line
I would say that upsizing to a 1" water meter wont be allowed without Aditional $$$$$, big $$$$$.
First of all, your "water tap" off the water main is most likely 3/4",( i could be wrong of course) but you are being charged for a standard 5/8" household tap(and standard 5/8" meter size) and you probably have a 3/4" service line to the water meter. When Upsizing to a larger tap size i would bet the costs of doing this rise significantly. The next meter size above 5/8" is 3/4", then 1" and the costs go up as the tap size go up.
I have to make several suppositons based on your info, but talk to your water provider before doing anything. They should be able to confirm what i'm suggesting, or not.

Hope this helps
